Undergraduate Study



The collegiate University appoints teams of trained, professional staff to deliver our admissions, recruitment and outreach functions. Each year we conduct outreach activity that engages thousands of students, teachers and advisers across the whole of the UK and in many locations overseas. We're often asked by alumni how they can help with our efforts to attract the strongest possible field of applicants. We recognise that alumni can reach and connect with audiences in a way that the University itself cannot, and often have local expertise which can be extremely valuable to the University.

To ensure that you're up-to-date with aspects of the University and Colleges that change over time, please maintain regular contact the collegiate University. If you're invited to a school, please advise the Cambridge College linked to the area to ensure your proposed visit compliments work already being delivered by the College. For visits outside the UK, please contact the University's Development and Alumni Relations office in the first instance.
