Every year, Trinity College run a number of residential programmes for students who are keen to explore their subject outside of school and experience what it would be like to study at a top university. Students on these residentials stay in college accommodation, meet current Cambridge students and have taster lectures and seminars 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 deadline for the residentials below is midnight on Tuesday 22nd May.

Students on our residentials are selected using a range of both academic and widening participation criteria – we are particularly keen to identify students with no family history of higher education, those from schools who send few candidates to Oxford and Cambrige, and students in care. Students should also be capable of achieving top grades in their A levels by the end of Year 13.
“In order to maintain Trinity’s fine academic tradition, we need constantly to explore new sources of untapped potential. We are committed to admitting the most promising students, and are therefore eager to attract the widest possible field of outstanding applicants.”
~ Lord Rees, Former Master of Trinity College
