Information for teachers, tutors and HE advisers
We value enormously the support and encouragement that teachers, tutors and HE advisers give to students who may be thinking of applying here. The Cambridge Admissions Office (CAO) and College Admissions Offices are happy to give advice to teachers on admissions policy and other matters.
Cambridge Admissions And Commercial Organisations
- Commercial organisations offering admissions coaching or other services
A number of commercial organisations produce publications or offer services which suggest an association with the University or purport to provide prospective students with information and guidance that they cannot otherwise access. Such publications and services are typically offered for a fee.
The University of Cambridge provides comprehensive information and guidance about the admissions process free of charge through its website (www.study.cam.ac.uk/undergraduate/) and publications (www.study.cam.ac.uk/undergraduate/publications/), and events such as Open Days. The University therefore does not endorse or support commercial providers.
- The CUSU “Official Cambridge Guide to Excellence”
Cambridge University Students’ Union (CUSU) is an independent organisation, connected with, but separate from, the University of Cambridge. CUSU has recently contracted with the commercial publisher St. James’ House to produce the “Official Cambridge Guide to Excellence”. This publication seeks to raise money for CUSU through the sale of editorial space.The University of Cambridge neither endorses nor supports this initiative.
