Peterhouse Taster Day

130 Year 12 students from Oxfordshire, Nottinghamshire and the London Borough of Hillingdon visited Peterhouse, Cambridge for a day event in April 2016. Attendees and their teachers got to experience a sample lecture, had a teaching session in their choice of the University’s many museums, toured the College with current undergraduates and received advice and guidance on applying.

"An excellent day – the students and I really enjoyed it and it made the students feel happier about applying to Cambridge and not daunted owing to its reputation...The itinerary for the day was excellent – I wouldn’t change it! It was pitched at the correct level for the students."
