The Conference will be free, and will involve a number of sessions aimed at supporting teachers at schools in their work with potential applicants to Cambridge.

The Admissions Tutors will also be on hand to offer guidance relating to the changes to our applications system, in particular around admissions assessments. Additionally, we will offer teachers the chance to attend sample lectures from our Fellowship. A free buffet lunch and refreshments will be offered. Please notify us of any dietary requirements.
