Our work with Scotland


Virtual Information Seminar Series

Our new Information Seminar Series is designed to inform prospective applicants about the University of Cambridge. This series is being delivered by Pembroke, Homerton, and Emmanuel Colleges. Students in S5 and S6 who are currently attending a state school will benefit from a number of live online sessions that will:

  • Provide an insight into the University, so students get an idea if we might be the place for them
  • Include information about personal statements, interviews, and super-curricular activities, enabling students to maximise their chances of applying successfully
  • Give the opportunity to speak to Scottish students who currently attend the University of Cambridge


  • Thursday 2nd September 2021: 'Why Cambridge?' (S5 & S6)
  • Thursday 9th September 2021: 'The Cambridge Application Process Explained' (S6)
  • Thursday 10th February 2022: 'Things to know about applying to an English University' (S5)
  • Thursday 15th June 2022: 'The Cambridge Application Process Explained' (S5)
