Catz and Queens' BME Q&A Sessions

We are hosting online Q&A sessions on Saturday 20th June for BME students in Year 12 (or equivalent) at UK state schools.


Our BME Access Day in March 2020 unfortunately had to be cancelled due to COVID-19. However, we have organised online replacement Q&A sessions hosted by the BME Officers of Catz and Queens' College student committees. This is an opportunity to speak to staff and students at the University of Cambridge and ask all your questions about applications to the University and what it's like to study here.


These sessions are open to Black and Minority Ethnic students who are in Year 12 (or equivalent) at UK state school. If this does not apply to you, please see this page for other online events which are open to all.

How will the Q&A sessions work?

Join any of the three Q&A sessions on Sat 20th June to ask students and staff at Catz and Queens' your questions about life at Cambridge, both academic and social! If you're unsure which subject you'd like to apply for, feel free to attend both subject sessions and find out more about what studying different courses involves.

The sessions will take place using Zoom and will of course be completely free of charge. Your camera and audio will be disabled for all sessions but the Q&A feature will allow you to type any questions you have, big or small. These questions can also be anonymous if you prefer.


Science Subjects: 10-11am

Sciences students will be joined by David Bainbridge, Admissions Tutor for Sciences at Catz, to answer your questions about applying for and studying a science subject. Click here to register.

Social Life and General Questions: 3-4pm

Current students from Catz and Queens' will be answering any questions you have about the social side of being a student at Cambridge! Joining the session will be Mary Simuyandi, Catz Welfare Officer, and David Bainbridge, Catz Disabilities Tutor and Admissions Tutor. No question is too big or too small for us to answer.
