Visits to Cambridge

You are here

Visiting the University effectively allows the students to envisage a student lifestyle along with raising aspirations, encouraging them to stay committed to education and continuing to reach their academic potential.

Homerton can organise visits to the College from all secondary school years, with a maximum student group size of 50. Typically visits to the college consists of a mix of the following, but this is not exclusive:

Presentations

  • Thinking about HE
  • Student Finance: The Facts
  • Admissions Procedures

Workshops and Interactive Sessions

  • Interview Skills
  • Personal Statement Skills
  • Cambridge University: Myth Busting
  • Accommodation: True or False

These activities will normally be run by the Schools and Colleges Liaison Officer, however sometimes Admissions Tutors and Departmental Outreach Staff can be involved, depending on availability.

If your visit is during term time (please look here) our current undergraduate students will often help with the visit (if available) and are happy to run:

  • Student Run College Tour
  • Student Panel (Q+A session)

Prospective students often find the opportunity to speak with current students very useful and an extremely popular part of the day; this allows students to ask questions they wouldn’t otherwise ask! 

For day visits to the College, we recommend that you allow approximately 5 hours so we can provide a wide range of activities and deliver an informative visit. A sample programme along with timings can be found by clicking here which should give you an idea of how a typical day visit runs.

It is also possible to arrange an overnight stay in college accommodation and have the programme run over two days. For more information on this please contact the Schools and Colleges Liaison Officer directly. 

Visits to the colleges prove extremely popular and therefore we advise to plan and arrange your visit 2 months in advance of the planned event date. Please refer to the side menu for the contact details of the Schools and Colleges Liaison Officer for assistance or use the booking link to request a visit.
