Access and Outreach

Peterhouse Outreach is committed to providing young people with the information and support necessary to make competitive applications to university. In particular, we seek to encourage and enable students from underrepresented, under-served and disadvantaged backgrounds to access the University of Cambridge and higher education more widely. To help us achieve this we run a variety of online and in-person outreach programmes and opportunities for students and schools. Please see below for further information about these.

Area Links Scheme

Every part of the UK is linked with a Cambridge College through the Area Links Scheme, which gives schools and colleges in each area a direct contact at the University. Please note that these links are in no way intended to be prohibitive or restrictive, but rather provide a 'first port of call' for schools and students wishing to find out more about Cambridge and what it can offer.

Peterhouse's Link Areas are:

  • Oxfordshire
  • Nottinghamshire
  • London Borough of Hillingdon

We are also linked with select Cambridgeshire schools as part of Connect2Cambridge

To find out more about the programme of events that we offer to schools in our Link Areas, please see the 'Events for Schools' section below.

We are always happy to hear from teachers and advisers in one of our Link Areas. If you would like to be added to our outreach mailing list to be kept up-to-date with our outreach opportunities newsletter please complete the following form.


If you have any questions, please contact our Outreach Officers, Sophie and Isabel.
