Speakers visit the campus every 2-3 weeks, giving talks about their specialist subject, hosting debates, performing mock interviews and advising on admissions.

It is always a pleasure to lecture to CATS students. CATS is very supportive of visiting speakers, and the students are always attentive, lively, and enthusiastic.
Dr David Smith, Historian at Selwyn College, University of Cambridge
