A Research Fellowship provides an opportunity to spend up to four years in Cambridge undertaking post‐doctoral research or scholarly work at an early stage of an academic career; this research may be on a topic essentially of the Fellow’s own choice however, for an experimental scientist suitable arrangements must be made with one of the laboratories in the University.
Access and Outreach Programme
Trinity College is committed to outreach and ensuring that the most capable students, regardless of their school, geographical location or socioeconomic status, are able and encouraged to make competitive applications to the university. Our outreach team works with Primary, Secondary, Sixth Form schools & colleges and external organisations to develop and deliver a range of activities and events for under-represented groups who could benefit from higher education with the aim of developing skills and knowledge to support progression. We want to ensure that students aren’t discouraged from applying to Cambridge because of their background and we want to break down misconceptions that might put them off applying.
These activities also promote the idea that the University of Cambridge is for prospective applicants who:
- love their subject, and want a truly engaging university experience
- wish to combine learning with a whole host of extracurricular activities, events and traditions
- want to be supported to achieve their potential
- understand that any individual can fit in, with a society and college to fit every type of person
- appreciate that whilst the workload can be intimidating, most students are passionate about the subject, and the tutorial system gives students the chance to truly engage and succeed with their topics
