More than 40 students have signed up to Trinity’s new Ambassador Scheme to volunteer on outreach activities.
Professor Joan Lasenby was among the first female undergraduates at Trinity in 1978. She studied Mathematics and admits that at the time 'engineering was something of a mystery to me'. She went on to a PhD in Radio and Molecular Studies at the Cavendish Laboratory.
Less than a year after she graduated, Trinity alumna Richelle George has begun her first job in international development, based in Cyprus, with Acasus, a consultancy that works with governments to improve health and education systems.
Three women at Trinity talk about Class Act, a group set up to support and represent students from backgrounds underrepresented at Cambridge.
Trinity's Schools Liaison Officers, Terri-Leigh Riley and Ellie Wood were the first in their families to go to university and had little help from their schools in applying to Cambridge. They're passionate about widening access for less-advantaged students.
