Cambridge Transition Year – Admissions and Outreach Briefing 2020

What is the Transition Year? This new programme is mentioned in the Cambridge APP. You might have been involved in University-wide consultations and discussions already, but you also might know nothing at all at this point.

This briefing will bring you up to date with the development of the programme. It is a high-profile initiative for the University and while the programme isn’t due to launch until 2021 and the first students aren’t anticipated to begin their studies until 2022, you may be asked for more information. This session will let you know how you can best respond to any enquiries you might get from prospective applicants or advisors in this coming year.

Cambridge Admissions Office has organised a series of briefing sessions in the coming weeks aimed at Schools Liaison Officers, Faculty/Department Outreach Staff, and any academics and staff members who will communicate with potential students. There are two sessions - attendance at both it not compulsory. Both will be run by Dr Sam Lucy (Director of College Admissions).

  • Session One: Undergraduate Admissions - An Overview (14:00-15:00)

This session will aim to explain the University’s admissions process and provide advice on how to communicate this to prospective applicants. These sessions are aimed at any academics and staff members wishing to increase their knowledge of the application process, and will be particularly useful to those who may communicate with prospective students at University Open Days or similar events. Please note that this session is aimed at those who are new to the University, or have little previous experience of the undergraduate admissions process in Cambridge.

  • Session Two: Undergraduate Admissions- Answering Difficult Questions (15:15-16:30)

This session is aimed at academics and staff whose role may frequently involve talking to prospective students, parents, and teachers and will offer advice on how to respond to difficult or controversial questions.

Representatives from the Communications Office Social Media team will take you through how to best use social media to communicate with potential applicants, schools and students. This session will suit College, Faculty and Department outreach or communications staff, whether you currently have a social media account or are looking to set one up.
