The Cambridge Language Collective

Run by Cambridge students, the Cambridge Language Collective is a space for linguists and foreign language culture lovers to explore, discover and contribute to the furthering of knowledge and experience beyond the curriculum. Whether you are interested in news, views, reviews, interviews, columns or podcasts there is a something here for you.

For teachers

If you are supporting a young person who is thinking about their university options, it is likely that you have your own questions and concerns about them entering higher education.

We value enormously the support and encouragement that teachers, tutors, and HE advisers give to students who may be thinking of applying here. You'll find lots of useful advice and guidance in the Advice for teachers, tutors & HE advisers pages. Cambridge Admissions Office (CAO) and College admissions offices are always available to give advice to teachers on admissions policy and other matters.

The University’s comprehensive guide for teachers, tutors and HE advisors can be found here.

Cambridge University events for teachers

As well as events for prospective students, a number of events for teachers, tutors, and HE advisers are organised by the Cambridge Admissions Office (CAO) and several of the Colleges. These events provide up-to-date information about the University, including the application procedure and the range of outreach activities on offer.

A wide range of access and widening participation initiatives and events are also run each year. Find out more here.

The Prince’s Teaching Institute


The Prince's Teaching Institute has worked in partnership with the University of Cambridge since the charity was created in 2006. Many of its academic speakers are drawn from Cambridge faculties, including several from the Cambridge MMLL Faculty. We hope to meet you on a Prince's Trust event soon! 

Oxford and Cambridge Outreach Network

The Oxford and Cambridge Collaborative Outreach Network was founded to highlight opportunities for both teachers and students to find out more about studying at Oxford or Cambridge. It brings together details of upcoming events, helpful resources and information, and booking for school visits.

If you are a school or college student thinking of studying Modern Languages or Linguistics at university, these pages will provide you with sample approaches to the study of culturally significant texts and resources for exploring them.
