Our outreach programme and widening participation

Downing College is committed to encouraging bright students from all backgrounds to apply to university. Our work with schools and colleges seeks to promote educational opportunities and raise aspirations. In particular, we seek to encourage people whose families or schools have little experience of higher education to consider applying to Cambridge and other universities. Our full time School and College Liaison Officer is available to give advice and guidance throughout the year at access@dow.cam.ac.uk
