Area Links Scheme

The University's Area Links Scheme enables the Cambridge Colleges to build effective, coherent relationships with schools and colleges across the UK.

As part of this scheme, Downing work predominantly, but not exclusively, as the first point of contact for schools in Cornwall, Devon and Dorset, including the communities of Plymouth, Torbay, Poole and Bournemouth.

The Area Links Scheme does not preclude you from contacting or being contacted by a College other than your link College(s). Please also note that there is no expectation or obligation for you to apply to the relevant link College and participation in Area Links Scheme initiatives does not influence whether Colleges invite applicants for interview or offer them places.
