School Visits


"The students found it interesting to talk to a person who had studied at Cambridge, as well as working there now. Each session was tailored for the audience and this made it very helpful to everyone involved."

Adviser, Wiltshire

"The pupils loved asking questions and the staff were beyond positive too!"

Teacher, Gloucestershire

"It was great to see someone from a state school who had been successful at Cambridge on an inspirational/accessible level."

Teacher, Wiltshire

"It was very useful for those who attended the talk to hear information firsthand and delivered in such an approachable way."

Adviser, Gloucestershire

"Mythbusting, balance of videos and presentation, and Q&A were most useful and enjoyable."

Teacher, London Borough of Wandsworth

Robinson College participates in the University of Cambridge Area Links scheme (learn more here), and is the link Cambridge college for Swindon, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and the London Borough of Wandsworth. We regularly visit state-maintained schools and FE Colleges in these areas to talk about Cambridge life and applications. We also invite visits from school groups in these areas to Robinson College, to experience a day of Cambridge life for themselves.
