The Senior Tutors' Committee expects those involved in the undergraduate admissions selection process to receive appropriate training. What is appropriate will vary, depending on whether you are an experienced interviewer (who might be new to the online format, or just wanting a refresher) or someone new to admissions interviewing in Cambridge.

Experienced interviewers should study the refresher information in the 'Experienced Interviewers' section of the online Moodle course, although are welcome to sign-up for a workshop if additional training would be beneficial.

New interviewers should sign up to a workshop in their subject or a related discipline. Before attending the workshop, please study the online module. This module provides an overview of Cambridge's undergraduate admissions process and highlights some important principles and practices relating to conducting effective admissions.

These workshops for new interviewers cover the entire selection process as well as interviewing techniques. Led by Admissions Tutors, they are designed to help you make your contribution to the admissions selection process as effective as possible. They include opportunities to practise by interviewing current first-year undergraduates, using authentic paperwork, and they explain how interviews and admissions decisions relate to the University’s Access and Participation Plan agreed with the Office for Students (OfS).

The workshop will focus on mock interviews, with first-year undergraduates in related disciplines, and on discussion with an Admissions Tutor. We have asked all volunteer interviewees to consent to our circulating their application papers to participants in advance of the workshop, so that you may consider possible approaches to interviewing mock applicants.
