Access to Higher Education

Homerton College is committed to encouraging the very best students to apply to the University of Cambridge.

At Homerton we welcome all students with the academic potential and enthusiasm to succeed, regardless of their school or background.

Homerton is an inclusive and welcoming environment. We value diversity and we want to help our students to reach their full potential and have a positive impact on the world. Our aim is to raise students’ aspirations and educational potential by giving tailored advice and guidance at all stages of school education. We remain dedicated to ensuring all those who apply are treated fairly, and that fair access to the University is promoted and sustained.

The College offers information, advice and guidance in many different ways to ensure no student is discouraged from applying to us. We can offer extensive support, and dispel myths about financial barriers and the 'typical' Cambridge student. Our support covers a wide range of areas, from the time you start to think about higher education to detailed admissions and application workshops.

Our Outreach Team are available to offer support to students and schools throughout the year and to answer any questions. Contact our Schools Liaison Officer at
