Clare College's annual Teachers' Day is back - with two dates for 2023!
Clare College's Admissions Tutors invite you to Cambridge for a day of discussion with other teachers and advisors from across the UK. This event is open to all UK teachers/advisors.
As we wrap up another busy admissions round, we want to learn from you about how we can work together to support your students in the future, from the earliest stages of a UCAS application to A Level results and arrival at university.
After the success of our 2022 Teachers' Day in June, and to ensure as many teachers and advisors as possible can attend, we are adding a second Teachers' Day, in March, to our annual programme of admissions and outreach events.
The information below applies to the Teachers' Day on the 10th March 2023. We will publish further information on the June Teachers' Day on this website in due course.
This event is open to all teachers and careers/HE advisors at UK schools and colleges. We welcome participation equally from teachers and advisors with experience of sending young people to Oxford and Cambridge, and from those who have not done so before. Much of the event will be aimed at supporting university applicants aged 16-18, but teachers and advisors of all ages are very welcome to attend.
This event is free of charge. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
The Teachers' Day includes...
Registration and refreshments will begin at 10:00 for a 10:30 start.
Admissions Roundtable: With our Admissions Tutors. Please bring any discussion points or questions you may have about any aspect of the Cambridge application process.
Subject Sessions: Short half-hour sessions focusing on admissions in a range of Arts and Sciences subjects, led by our Directors of Studies. The March Teachers' Day will include sessions in Chemical Engineering & Biotechnology, Engineering, Geography, History, and Psychological and Behavioural Sciences.
The Cambridge Interview: A closer look inside the interview process and how we use it to assess applications.
Tour of College: Including our first-year student accommodation and the Forbes Mellon Library.
The event will conclude by 16:30, but we are happy to continue talking over coffee afterwards if there are any particular questions that the day has raised.
Travelling to Clare College, Cambridge
Clare College Memorial Court is located on Queen's Road, a 5-minute walk from Cambridge city centre. We regret that we cannot offer parking in College for this event.
Parking in Cambridge is expensive and much of the city centre is pedestrianised. We suggest that you consider the city's excellent Park-and-Ride service which will save you time and money. The Park-and-Ride costs a total of £3 per vehicle for the day and takes you directly into the city centre.
Cambridge is well connected to London and the Midlands and can be easily reached via rail and coach. Please get in touch if we can help advise on how best to travel to Cambridge.
