Visit Days to Pembroke (Year 12)

Each year, Pembroke hosts visit days for schools in our Link Areas, who are invited to apply to bring groups of up to ten Year 12 students to us for the day. The programme of the day tries to provide information that is relevant to that age group, and is as interactive as possible!

Schedules for the day typically include:

  • Information regarding Cambridge, and our application process (including details of how we vary from other universities)
  • Information about what students can do now to prepare for university, and maximise their chances of getting an offer
  • The benefits of studying at Cambridge
  • An opportunity to meet current students
  • A tour of the college
  • Lunch (usually in the dinner hall)
  • An interactive debating session to encourage confidence of discussing topics in an academic setting
  • An opportunity to ask questions of Pembroke’s Admissions Tutor


Our Year 12 visit days are run on set dates during the Spring Term; in 2018 these will be:

  • Tuesday 20th February, 2018
  • Wednesday 21st February, 2018
  • Tuesday 6th March, 2018
  • Wednesday 7th March, 2018


These 2018 events will be advertised in the Autumn Term, 2017, via our e-newsletter. Due to a limited number of places, we ask schools to apply to attend. If you are a teacher or careers adviser at a state school in one of our Link Areas, and do not receive our e-newsletter, please email to be added to our mailing list.
