Resources for school students

There are a number of resources available for students interested in studying at the University of Cambridge. Hopefully a lot of your questions will be answered by exploring our College website but, if not, here are some other helpful websites.

  • The University of Cambridge Admissions Page contains information on all of the courses and colleges at Cambridge.
  • The University of Cambridge YouTube Channel - The Undergraduate Study playlist contains videos about many aspects of life at Cambridge, from the interview process to the first 48 hours of life at Cambridge.
  • – This is the University's Alternative Prospectus, written by the students, rather than by the staff. It contains a student perspective on each course and college, as well as information that you won’t find in the official prospectus (for instance, how much a drink in the bar costs, how many hours of work you get per week, and so on).
  • Ask-A-Student - This service is run by CUSU (Cambridge University Students Union). You can send a message to the page and it will be passed on to a current Cambridge Student, who will respond to you. You can ask about anything; what the food is like at a particular college, what it’s like to learn a language from scratch, whether a particular society exists for an interest you might have, and so on.
  • InsideUni - A new student-led project with application advice from Cambridge students including a database of interview experiences
  • HE+ is an access initiative run by Cambridge University to promote access to Higher Education. You’ll find online resources for a variety of subjects (not all of them yet, please do check back regularly as the site is updated) as well as useful additional reading and information for people interested in applying for courses at Cambridge.
  • The Russell Group Website - Guidance for students from the Russell Group (24 of the UK’s top Universities, including Oxford, Cambridge, Manchester, Edinburgh, UCL and many more)
  • Oxford & Cambridge Collaborative Outreach Network - Events and resources from the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford

If you have any questions, or would like to know more, please email Kathryn Singleton, the Schools Liaison Officer.
