Robinson College is committed to supporting all prospective students who wish to apply to the College, regardless of social or educational background. To this end, the Robinson Admissions Team works to provide information, guidance, and support to all interested students through a variety of events and programmes.

Below you can see our 2021 events calendars for both Admissions and Outreach activities. You can find out more about these by exploring the sidebar, or by following the links below.

Teachers and supporters of applicants can see the provision we offer for schools in our dedicated 'Teachers and Supporters' section.
