Clare College Cambridge


Clare College is forging links with schools across Coventry to ensure that all students who attend schools in the city have access to honest, detailed and accurate information about university in general and Cambridge in particular. We want Coventry students to aim high when it comes to considering Higher Education, and our aim is to motivate students to achieve the best that they can in their academic careers.

For sixth-formers considering an application to Cambridge, we want to provide support in every way that we can, including guidance on personal statements, UCAS applications, interview techniques and increasing subject knowledge outside of the classroom.

We welcome groups from schools in Coventry to visit the College throughout the year, and the Schools Liaison Officers are available to visit schools to run workshops and talk to students. 

If you are a student or teacher from Coventry and you have any further questions about the Schools Liaison Programme and how you can get involved, please contact the Clare College Schools Liaison Officers.


In addition to the above, Clare College organises an annual "Access Tour", details of which are normally circulated in early January.

Access Bus

When? March

Where? Schools in Coventry & Warwickshire

Who? School students from Year 7-12

What? Groups of undergraduates tour the area for a week, trying to visit as many schools as they can. They deliver workshops and talks about university life, and give school students the opportunity to ask all those questions they would never ask their teacher. This is an enormously popular initiative, and visits are offered on a first-come-first-served basis.
