University of Cambridge
8.1 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 44 ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"I think the university does try hard (and I helped with some access work at my college so I know that there are regular visits organised for different socio-economic brackets), but there are very enduring preconceptions about us. These are self-perpetuating if the groups who feel like they would not belong do not apply. Hopefully, given the (very slow) progress which is being made, change can accelerate and everyone who wants to come can be made to feel that they would fit in."
