Cambridge Uni visit LPA

Cambridge University talk – 26th November 2018

This week we received a visit from Will Fenwick who works as the School Liaison Officer for Robinson College, Cambridge. Will outlined the benefits of going to university and the type of courses available. Year 12 received guidance on what to include in personal statements and discussed the type of people they might meet at Cambridge. Will himself studied Geography at Cambridge and went to a state school in the North East.

Thomas F said “The talk was useful, made the whole process clear and showed that Cambridge is not just for kids from private schools, it’s a level playing field.”

Louise L added that the talk “reinforced what I knew from attending a summer school at Cambridge – it’s for people from state schools too, most people at Cambridge went to schools like mine”.
