For Schools

Schools Liaison Office

The Schools Liaison Office provides a point of contact for students and teachers interested in our undergraduate degrees in History, History & Modern Languages, and History & Politics. Please contact us with general enquiries about the course. We are also happy to help in finding visiting speakers. We will do our best to answer admissions enquiries. However, enquiries about admissions criteria (e.g. about international qualifications) are better directed to the Cambridge Admissions Office, and enquiries about admissions procedures (e.g. about at-interview tests) are better directed to particular colleges.

If you would like to contact us, please email schoolsliaisonoffice@hist.cam.ac.uk

History for Schools

Cambridge History for Schools is an outreach initiative for school children aged 7-11 and 11-14 started by Professor Ulinka Rublack for the History Faculty in October 2011. It aims to stimulate critical thinking about evidence and interpretations. The History Faculty covers a particularly broad range of specialisms, and our workshops wish to communicate our research on diverse subjects which sometimes lie outside school curricula.  

The sessions are held once per term with separate events for each age group.

2020-2021

History for Schools is doing things a little differently this year. Normally, we love nothing more than inviting you to come and see us here at the History Faculty. This year, to keep everyone safe, we have moved online for Michaelmas and Lent. 
 
We have some great workshops for you to download for use at home or school.
 
Our Michaelmas workshops will be available from 16 November 2020, and our Lent workshops will be launched on 1 February 2021. Rather than being limited to just one day, our virtual workshops will be available from their launch date until the end of the academic year.

Please watch this space for forthcoming information or contact Stephanie Brown at admin@hist.cam.ac.uk if you have any questions.
