The webinar will cover:

  • Welcome and Downing History
  • Cambridge Admissions Overview
  • Student Life Talk
  • Personal Statement Workshop
  • Interview Advice
  • Q&A

The webinar is not subject focused and will provide general advice for applying to the University of Cambridge. It is advised that students interested in applying to Cambridge watch one of our Subject Admissions Webinars, if their subject is available, for subject specific advice.  Speaking to the department is also recommended. Sign up to attend a Subject Admissions Webinar here.
