In the light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we have moved all of our residential programmes online, where we will deliver engaging and interactive academic content virtually, in keeping with current guidelines.
Every year, Trinity College runs a number of residential programmes for students and teachers, keen to explore their subject outside of school and experience what it would be like to study at a top university. Students stay in college accommodation, meet current students and have taster lectures, seminars and supervisions in a variety of subjects. They also have the opportunity to explore the city, and take part in a number of social activities during the week. The residentials are entirely free, including accommodation and all food, and funds are available to cover transport costs to and from Cambridge if necessary.
The Churchill and Trinity Colleges AHSS Residential will bring to Cambridge budding Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences students, like you, from August 1 to 4. Attendees will experience university life: from staying in student accommodation, to experiencing taster supervisions, lectures and seminars, to researching, writing and submitting an essay. The residential is free of charge and open to applications from UK state-educated students in Year 12 or equivalent.
An immersive, 4-day programme that aims to introduce highly able students to the benefits of studying languages at university. The residential will involve a series of (online) workshops designed to give a sample of studying languages at the University of Cambridge, taster sessions with Trinity College academics and expose students to the career opportunities available to graduates. The programme will feature a range of informative talks and Q&As, to give a flavour of studying languages as an undergraduate student, as well as the opportunity to sample the social and extracurricular side of being a linguist at Trinity.
The Virtual Women in STEM residential is part of Trinity College’s annual offering to widen participation from women and non-binary students interested in STEM. We are committed to diversifying our STEM undergraduate cohorts and this residential is designed to inform, empower and inspire women and non-binary prospective scientists to make competitive applications to our array of science courses.
The virtual Stonehouse Residential 2021 aims to replicate the detailed focus on teacher and student engagement that is at the core of the in-person programme. Selected schools will be eligible to nominate a class of Year 11 students to receive a day of bespoke talks and raising aspiration activities in late September. Students and the accompanying teacher will need to be off-timetable for the duration of the day that the school is involved.
Track to Trin is an innovative, student-led pilot mentoring scheme for Black Year 12 students and set to launch in March. The programme will be run, virtually, from April to September 2021 with PhD students from Trinity’s postgraduate academic community selected to lead monthly online supervision-style sessions with Black Year 12 students, aiming to offer guidance and super-curricular support.
We have partnered with The Brilliant Club to develop an exciting two-year programme of support for Scholars Programme graduates in the North of England who are interested in applying to the University of Cambridge or the University of Oxford (collectively known as Oxbridge).
Trinity Outreach will be launching a mentoring scheme for a small group of Year 12 students. This will consist of a blend of outreach-practitioner led sessions focused on informing and guiding students on the particulars of applying to university, whilst one-to-one sessions with carefully selected student mentors will boost their academic confidence and help to fill any gaps in their curriculum knowledge.
Christ’s and Trinity Colleges run an annual Women in Maths residential, a unique event for talented young women who want to study Mathematics and related courses at a top university. You’ll attend lectures and classes taught by Cambridge academics and meet current students and staff. It’s a great opportunity to gain an insight into what it’s like to study at Maths at the University of Cambridge. Attendees will also have the chance to virtually explore Christ’s and Trinity Colleges, and take part in a range of social activities and other maths-related activities alongside the academic lectures and classes.
We are happy to announce that we have launched a new programme for Year 10 students in partnership with Target Oxbridge! Target Oxbridge is a free online programme that will provide Black African and Caribbean students, and mixed race students with Black heritage, the opportunity to gain an early insight into life at Cambridge and how to secure a Cambridge place.
The Easy As Pi – Women in Maths Masterclass Programme will open your eyes to the magic of Maths and it’s use in solving crucial problems in today’s world. Through a series of hands-on extra-curricular online workshops, students all over the UK will meet to explore the subject in innovative and interesting ways.
The event is designed to bring language learning to life, help build their confidence and make learning a language exciting for young people. We hope to encourage them to continue with their language learning beyond GCSE and to understand the importance of languages in a global context.
In partnership between World Class Schools Quality Mark (WCSQM) and Trinity, this programme aims to work with teachers to frame the A Level curriculum content in the context of studying the subject at university.
ClickCambridge is a new online programme for 2020/21, which aims to equip students with the information and skills needed to apply to selective universities. Trinity are directly involved in the delivery of the Year 10 programme for Black/mixed Black students.
For the upcoming academic year, Trinity College will be offering our link schools (Hampshire, Milton Keynes and Isle of Wight) a package of bookable online outreach sessions designed for students and teachers that can be delivered remotely in a safe and flexible manner at no cost to the schools.
HE+ is a collaborative project between the University of Cambridge and its Colleges, working together with groups of state schools and colleges in 18 regions of the UK. In the 2017-18 academic year, over 3,000 Year 12 students in more than 130 schools and colleges are participating in the initiative.
