Through the University's Area Links Scheme, Robinson College is primarily linked with schools in the Local Authority areas of Swindon, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, and the London Borough of Wandsworth. While the College concentrates its outreach provision within these areas, we are always open to working with schools in other regions. Please submit a request for a 'visit' below if you would like to work with us, or email Ruth, the Schools Liaison Officer directly (email@example.com).
All teachers and support staff are welcome to sign up to our outreach mailing list, which advertises events organised by both Robinson and other Cambridge colleges.
Request a virtual school 'visit'
All school 'visits' will be virtual for the foreseeable future, with the hope that in-person school visits can return in the 2021 academic year. Until then, sessions on Cambridge, 'Oxbridge', and on Higher Education more generally can be given to schools via platforms such as Zoom and MS Teams. Requests from schools in the College's link areas will be prioritised; requests from other schools will be dependent on the capacity of the Admissions Team.
You can request sessions by submitting this form. If you'd like to enquire about doing a session or event not listed on the form, please get in touch directly.
Events for Teachers and Supporters
The central University organises a range of events for teachers, advisors, and other supporters throughout the year. These can be found here. Official guides on navigating the application process for 2022 entry are also available for both teachers and parent/guardians.
