UCAS Information October 2021
Free online sessions to support Year 13 students with their university applications
Churchill College Cambridge, in association with Croydon Council, will be running two free online sessions in the autumn term to support Year 13 students in their university applications.
These sessions are aimed at Year 13s planning on applying to competitive academic universities. They are designed to help students strengthen the quality of their applications, and to gain knowledge and confidence that will aid them in the process.
The sessions will be run by admissions and outreach staff from Churchill College, Cambridge and will also include time for Q&A regarding the admissions process.
Whilst these sessions are being run by representatives for the University of Cambridge, they will be applicable to any competitive academic UK university course, including those run at Cambridge, Oxford and other Russell Group institutions.
