Widening participation with Welsh students

Undergraduate Jack Bailey (Law 2018) was invited to speak at an event in Cardiff over the summer to encourage other Welsh students get into top universities.

He says: “I gave a talk at the Welsh Government’s SEREN Celebration event about breaking down the perceived barriers to get into Oxbridge universities.

“There’s a bit of a stigma that Oxbridge is for posh people and over privileged people and that’s simply not true.

“I spoke about how we can fight those preconceptions and how we can get there too.

“It is my pride to say with confidence and sincerity that Cambridge, and Fitz in particular, is setting the pace on access to higher education and is working harder than ever before to ensure that the access work they do is meaningful and has substantive outcomes.”
