Trinity’s BME Student Conference on 24 February will give 50 Year 12 students from BME (black and minority ethnic) backgrounds inspiring insights into College life, information on the admissions process, and the opportunity to take part in a supervision, a key component of the learning experience at Cambridge.
Award-winning artist Dr Wendy McMurdo has been appointed lead photographer of Pairings, an innovative arts project which celebrates the many and varied ways in which Trinity has inspired students, Fellows, staff and alumni. Pairings is part of the celebrations marking the 40th anniversary of women’s admission to Trinity.
This first-of-its kind scheme offers teachers of 16-18 year-olds in the UK the opportunity to immerse themselves in College life, meet Trinity admissions staff, and pursue a research project beneficial to their teaching.
Students got an insight into the news-making process last week when ITV came to Cambridge to film reactions to the Prime Minister’s Brexit speech.
