Women in Maths 2021
YEAR 12 ONLINE PROGRAMME
APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED
If you are currently in Year 11 (S4 Scotland, Y12 Northern Ireland) you can register your interest for this event in 2022 and we’ll send you an email when applications open.
Christ’s and Trinity Colleges run an annual Women in Maths residential, a unique event for talented young women who want to study Mathematics, taking place in March each year.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the event will take place through the spring of 2021 as a series of weekly sessions online.
WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY...
“Absolutely brilliant, liked that we saw the maths and everything was backed up by equations/evidence.”

What is the Women in Maths Residential?
While there are lots of events run across the country to encourage young women to study STEM subjects, this event specifically targets potential female applicants to Mathematics courses at top universities.
This event is open to women who are interested in studying Maths and related courses at a top university. During the event, you’ll attend lectures and classes taught by Cambridge academics and meet current students and admissions 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.
The event is entirely free.
ELIGIBILITY AND SELECTION
This residential is open to any women in Year 12 / S5 (Scotland) / Y13 (Northern Ireland) at the time of the event and attending a UK state school. You must be aged 16 or over by the first day of the event (late March), and you must be taking A Level Mathematics and A Level Further Mathematics, or IB Higher Level Mathematics ‘Analysis and Approaches’, or an equivalent qualification. Please get in touch if you have any queries about your qualifications.
Applicants will be assessed based on their academic record, their commitment to exploring maths at a higher level, and a teacher’s reference. In addition, we are particularly keen to identify students with little or no family tradition of higher education, those whose schools don’t send many applicants to Cambridge University, and students who’ve spent any time in care.
If selected to attend, you will be sent a confirmation form, requirements form and a code of conduct, which you must have signed by a parent/guardian before returning by email – this is to confirm that you have permission to attend the event in Cambridge and to notify us of any requirements you may have.
