Teachers and Advisors

Making decisions about the future can be difficult – and many of our students might not be here if they hadn’t been given the right information, at the right time, to help them choose.

That’s why teachers and advisors play such a crucial role in our application process. We couldn’t do it without you.

Helping teachers help students

We want to encourage applications from young people regardless of background. And we understand some schools can provide more support than others during the application process.

So, as part of the University of Cambridge Area Links Scheme, we hold a range of events to give teachers and advisers all the information they need to guide and support applicants.

The Pembroke link areas are:

  • Luton, Bedford Borough and Central Bedfordshire
  • Leicester and Leicestershire
  • Northamptonshire
  • London Borough of Southwark
  • Scotland (shared with Homerton and Selwyn Colleges)

We also host a number of teachers each year for short study visits, and deliver Teacher Briefings around our link areas.

Events for prospective students

Our Schools Liaison Officers run a year-round programme of events and visits for secondary school students in Year 9 and above. This includes day and residential events, plus visits to/from schools and colleges in our link areas.

Advice for teachers and parents

The University website also offers a wealth of information for teachers, advisors, parents and carers.

Any questions?

Please get in touch with our team and they’ll be glad to help!
