Clare College Cambridge

Area Links Scheme

The University's Area Links Scheme enables the Cambridge Colleges to build effective, coherent relationships with schools and colleges across the UK and:

  • gives schools and colleges a direct way of staying in touch with the University by providing specific contact points
  • enables the Cambridge Colleges to get to know specific regions and the local educational environments

All Cambridge Colleges share a willingness to provide advice and guidance, and to listen to your perspectives on what we can do to help make Cambridge as accessible as possible to all students with the ability and potential to study here.

The Area Links Scheme does not preclude you from contacting or being contacted by a College other than your link College(s). Please also note that there is no expectation or obligation for students to apply to the relevant link College and participation in Area Links Scheme initiatives does not influence whether Colleges invite applicants for interview or offer them places.


Clare College is linked with the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, the London Borough of Hackney, Coventry and Warwickshire. 


If your school lies outside of these areas, then please visit the Area Links homepage where you can find details of the Cambridge College to which you are linked.
