Corpus Christi College University of Cambridge

For Schools and Teachers

A Warm Welcome For All

At Corpus we welcome applications from students from any geographical area and any educational and social background.

As part of our commitment to widening participation at Cambridge, we work with state schools and colleges across the UK. Our Admissions Tutor and Schools Liaison Officer visit schools throughout out the country and are always keen to make new links in the sector.

If your school is interested, please contact our Admissions Office for more details.

We always try to satisfy requests for individual and small group visits to the College and can usually provide overnight accommodation out of term-time. We know how helpful it is for prospective students to talk to current Corpus undergraduates about their experiences so we arrange for them to meet during every school visit.

Cambridge University – Area Links Scheme

Under this scheme, the official link areas for Corpus Christi College are Northern Ireland, the City of London and the London Borough of Islington. We also share the link areas of West Berkshire and Wokingham with Trinity College. If your school or college is in any of these areas (or even if it’s not) and you’d like to hear more about the activities and events we offer, please contact our Admissions Coordinator Janet Rogers at

A word from Shona Whatford, Schools Liaison Officer

Shona WhatfordI studied History at Corpus from 2013 to 2016, and then stayed to complete a masters in History and Philosophy of Science. As a student I helped with many access events and initiatives at Corpus, and enjoyed meeting lots of students, as well as teachers and parents, showing them how welcoming and wonderful Corpus is as a place in which to study and call home. As Schools Liaison Officer, I'm keen to maintain our existing relationships with schools, but also make new connections, particularly with schools that have little or no experience of Oxbridge admissions.

I can visit schools or arrange for groups of students to visit Corpus where they can experience Cambridge life for themselves. Presentations are offered in the following areas:

  • The application process
  • Life at Cambridge
  • Taster lectures in different subjects
  • Raising aspirations
