Trinity’s Access work with state-maintained schools and colleges is part of the University’s wider Access and Widening Participation initiative, which seeks to raise students’ aspirations and encourage them to achieve their full potential, as well as ensuring that students aren’t discouraged from applying to Cambridge because of some of the myths and stereotypes that still linger around the University. We aim to provide accurate information about Outreach events, student life at Cambridge, financial support and the application process.
