On Wednesday 23rd March, the Year 12 Gifted and Talented group enjoyed a visit to King's College, Cambridge. Our visit was led by Kristy Guneratne, the Schools Liaison Officer at King's. On arrival, the first thing the group got to experience was eating lunch in the dining hall at King’s.  The students also had a very informative talk on ‘How Cambridge Works’ This included details such as how to apply, what the differences are within the colleges, the deadline date for applications and what to expect should you be asked to an interview at Cambridge. Kristy was also joined by Nicola; an English undergraduate at King’s who provided the group with a student’s perspective. This was then followed by an opportunity for the students to ask questions. This talk was so useful to the students, and really provided them with first hand knowledge of Cambridge University.

The students were also given a tour of King’s college which gave them access to areas ordinarily only available to undergraduates. This gave them an insight to the facilities that the college and Cambridge University itself has to offer.

Overall, this proved to be not only a very enjoyable day for the Year 12 Gifted and Talented group, but an extremely useful day which we hope has inspired many of the students to think of applying to Cambridge University, as well as to university in general.
