Improving Access

Fitzwilliam has a proud history of encouraging applications from all students who show academic potential, regardless of social or educational background.

This ethos remains central to our admissions policy and is demonstrated in our commitment to linking up with schools without a history of sending students to Cambridge, but which aspire to do so. Financial support from alumni enables the College to work with partners, such as the Sutton Trust, as well as to develop our own initiatives.

Access Fund

Established in 2012 and kick-started with a generous donation from Sir Peter Bazalgette (1973) the Access Fund supports the College's admissions initiatives.

Schools Liaison Officer

In 2011, Fitzwilliam gained its first Schools Liaison Officer, thanks to the support of Dick Tyler (1978) and Andrew Wilson (1978). Find out more here.
