Teachers’ Open Day: supporting your students’ applications

We host an annual Open Day specifically for teachers wanting to support their students in applying to Cambridge. The programme is designed both for teachers who are new to the Cambridge applications process, and for more experienced colleagues.

The next Teachers’ Open Day will be in spring 2020.

We make sure that you meet both current students, and the Director of Admissions. It will also be a useful opportunity to meet and talk to teacher colleagues over lunch, to compare your experiences.

Last year’s programme included the following:

  • Registration, refreshments
  • Update on admissions procedures and supporting your applicants (Dr Sam Lucy, Director of Admissions for the Cambridge Colleges)
  • Lunch with Senior Members in College Hall and opportunity to see the College gardens
  • Interviews: what we are looking for (Dr Sam Lucy, Director of Admissions for the Cambridge Colleges)
  • “I wish I had known this before my interviews”: Newnham undergraduates talk about their experience of applying
  • Newnham’s admissions activities: what we can offer schools/colleges
