Resources for Teachers

You might like to start with the teachers’ section of the Cambridge website, and particularly the official teachers’ guide to supporting Cambridge applicants.

For information about our Open Days and other Outreach events.

Curious about the facts behind the headlines? Cambridge Admissions experts talk through the university’s perspective on important news stories.

Careful choice of post-16 qualifications is crucial so that students keep doors open at university level. For advice relevant to the Russell Group, have a look at their Informed Choices publication, which has useful advice on key facilitating subjects. For advice specific to Cambridge, see Subject Matters and be aware that individual colleges may have particular requirements; for example, Trinity has a list of acceptable A-level combinations here.

It’s really important that students explore their subject beyond the school syllabus, so these suggestions for wider reading may be useful in stretching your most able students. There is also a guide to organising mock interviews, and see the ‘Interviews’ section for more resources, including test papers.

To get in touch with the Cambridge college linked with your local area, which can provide a first point of contact with the University and organise visits for your school or college, please see the Area Links page.

To keep up-to-date with the latest developments and events, sign up to the Cambridge newsletter for teachers and HE advisers.
