Events for Care Leavers and Children in Care

In 2010, the Cambridge Admissions Office launched Realise – a project designed to encourage more young people in care to consider higher education. See the Snapshots to read what some of our Realise event participants have to say about visiting the University.

Below are details of forthcoming events, as well as a link to past events (please also see the information, right, about the Open Days and Events Travel Fund). If you’d like to be added to our mailing list to receive the latest news and event details, please email your details to:
