Watch a webinar for mature students

Hughes Hall partnered with the other two mature colleges in Cambridge, and the University Admissions Office, to run a webinar series designed for mature student applicants; students aged 21 or over looking to study an undergraduate degree. Each webinar focused on a different element of the admissions process and included presentations by staff, first-hand experiences from current students, and a Q&A. You can watch recordings here:

  • Introduction Webinar: An Introduction to Mature Student Applications, the Mature Colleges, Funding, and the March Deadline. You can watch the recording here.
  • Applying Webinar: UCAS, Admissions Assessments and the ‘My Cambridge’ Application. You can watch the recording here.
  • Interview Process Webinar:  Top Tips, and How Can I Prepare? You can watch the recording here.
