Christ’s College Cambridge and Trinity College Cambridge are happy to announce their collaborative 2018 Women in Maths Residential – apply here!
This residential is open to women and non-binary students who are interested in studying Maths and related courses at a top university. The programme will run from Thursday 22nd March until Saturday 24th March, during which time you’ll attend lectures and classes, taught by Cambridge academics, as well as the Cambridge Science Festival. 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.
You’ll get the chance to meet current fellows and undergraduates, and gain a fantastic insight into what it’s like to study at Maths at the University of Cambridge. Attendees will also have the chance to explore the city of Cambridge, and take part in a range of social activities. The residential is free of charge, including accommodation and food costs and there are funds available to cover travel expenses to and from Cambridge.
ELIGIBILITY AND SELECTION
This residential is open to any women and non-binary students in Year 12 attending a UK state school. They must be aged 16 or over by the first day of the residential, and must be taking A level Further Mathematics (or equivalent qualification).
Applicants will be assessed based on their academic record, their commitment to exploring their subject at a higher level, and their 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, and students who’ve spent any time in care.
If selected to attend, applicants will be sent a confirmation form and a code of conduct, which they must have signed by a parent/guardian before returning it by post or email – this is to confirm that they have permission to attend the Residential in Cambridge.
You can apply for this residential here.
