St John's holds first subject-specific virtual Admissions Clinics
“We hope prospective students will enjoy the chance to chat to our Directors of Studies”
St John’s College is launching a new series of online Admissions Clinics for Year 12 students and other prospective undergraduates thinking about applying to Cambridge to study in 2022.
The Admissions Clinics are subject-specific for the first time and will be running weekly from 13 May until 29 June. They will be followed by the Virtual July Open Days on 8 and 9 July when students coming to the end of their first year of A-Levels and equivalent will have the chance to attend a wide range of online talks and live Q&As as part of the University Open Days events.
The clinics take place with the relevant College Directors of Studies, a current student and a member of the St John’s Admissions team and provide the opportunity to chat through the admissions process and ask questions about the subject, applications, or life studying in Cambridge in general.
Planned for after school hours, they cover Law (13 May); Natural Sciences (18 May); Music (25 May); Computer Science (1 June); Geography (3 June); Languages, Literature and Cultures (8 June); HSPS, History and History and Politics (17 June); Psychological and Behavioural Sciences (23 June), and Medicine and Veterinary Medicine (29 June).
In addition, the St John’s Admissions and outreach team is running a useful webinar programme for students from Years 10-13 throughout the year, plus two online programmes: ClickCambridge and the STEM @Cambridge access initiative.
Gaia Lambert, St John’s Schools Liaison and Access Officer, said: “Moving through the term, our webinars will begin to focus in on the application process, ahead of the exciting panels we have planned for the July Open Days. In such a time of uncertainty, it’s fantastic to be able to connect to prospective applicants online, and we hope everyone finds our events really useful in planning for their university applications in Year 13.
“We’re really excited about the provisions we’re able to offer this term. As prospective applicants begin to think more about their subject choices and their university applications, we hope they’ll enjoy the chance to chat to our Directors of Studies in our subject-specific Admissions Clinics.”
