Teachers' Conference: Supporting Cambridge Applicants
Fitzwilliam College | Wednesday 24 June 2015
Fitzwilliam College and Murray Edwards College would like to invite you to an intensive one-day conference for teachers and college lecturers. This conference is for all teachers and lecturers who advise students on applying to Cambridge as part of supporting their progression into Higher Education.
The aim of the conference is to provide you with very detailed information about the Cambridge admissions process, which continues to evolve, and about the subjects that the University offers - the proper and effective selection of which is so important to an applicant's chance of success.
The conference will follow the successful one-day format adopted last year. The conference will run from c. 10.00am to c. 4.00pm on Wednesday 24 June, and will include the following sessions:
- Introduction to Cambridge
- Admissions and interviews
- Detailed subject information and advice
- Q & A with current students
Our hope is that you will enjoy exploring Cambridge, finding out more about the University and exchanging ideas with us and our teaching/lecturing colleagues, and that you will leave very well informed about how best to advise those among your most able students who are considering applying to Cambridge. We very much hope you will be able to join us.
Accommodation will be available in one of the colleges on the Tuesday night, for those who live too far from Cambridge to arrive in time for a 10am start on the Wednesday morning. Accommodation (on a overnight/B&B basis) is free to all those attending the conference.
