Access and Outreach
Both the University of Cambridge and the individual Colleges run a number of initiatives to assist students from schools or families where there is little tradition of sending applicants to research-intensive universities such as Cambridge.
Visits to schools
Magdalene's Schools Liaison Officer visits maintained schools in our Link areas of Merseyside and North Wales and Ceredigion to run talks and workshops for Y10-13 students. Teachers can find out here how to arrange a visit.
Visits to Cambridge
Magdalene frequently hosts visiting school groups, with priority going to schools in our link areas of Merseyside and North and West Wales. Visits can be a general introduction to Cambridge or specific to a certain subject group.
BME Engineering Residential
We will be running an Engineering residential for Year 12 state school students who identify themselves as BME (Black and Minority Ethnic), in August 2019. The residential is a fantastic opportunity to experience living and studying at a top university.
Each year Magdalene hosts our free residential for state school students in our link areas of North and West Wales and Merseyside. The residential is for high-achieving Year 12 students who would like to find out more about studying at university.
Student Outreach Initiatives
Magdalene’s undergraduate students (known as the JCR) play an active role in Outreach initiatives. Everyone who studies here is keen to encourage prospective applicants to visit and apply to Magdalene.
