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.

Cambridge History for Schools

We are an outreach initiative for school children aged 7-11 and 11-14 started by Professor Ulinka Rublack for the History Faculty in October 2011. We aim 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.



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. 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.
If it is safe to do so, a spring session will be held at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Trumpington St, Cambridge CB2 1RB. Details on the event and how to book will be released closer to the time.
We'd love to know what you think of these sessions. Please let us know about you and give feedback to Grace Whorrall-Campbell at
