Events for Schools

The Peterhouse Outreach Team aims to develop relationships with schools and individuals, helping teachers to encourage and aid young people from a diverse range of backgrounds to apply to higher education and the University of Cambridge. Please see below for the opportunities on offer.

The College welcomes inquiries from schools. We would particularly encourage Heads of Sixth Forms, Teachers, and HE Advisors to get in touch to discuss how best to encourage and support their student(s) to apply to Peterhouse, especially if you are from a school with little or no previous interaction with Cambridge and its Colleges. Our Admissions Team are also happy to advise on individual applications, particularly in less straightforward cases. 


There's this massive myth surrounding Cambridge and the application process and I think it's so important for everyone to get first-hand information on what it's like to study here. It's so important that everyone has the same opportunities.


...this is a tried and tested model that works very well. We know that this makes a big difference to aspiration...Since we began to visit regularly our Oxbridge applications have increased markedly and I think that this visit [to Peterhouse] is significant.
