You don’t have to attend an open day to apply to Cambridge but visiting us does give you a chance to absorb the atmosphere, find out more about admissions procedures, courses and facilities, and ask any questions you may have.
The University and Colleges organise a large number of open days for prospective students currently in Year 12 (or equivalent) and mature applicants each year. Choose one of the options below for dates and more information:
If you can’t make an open day, you’re welcome to visit us at another time. The College and department grounds are open for most of the year for you to wander round. However, there are restrictions and/or charges for tourists at certain Colleges and at certain times, such as during exams, so it’s advisable to check in advance.
If you’d like to speak to College staff about admissions during a visit to Cambridge, please contact the College admissions office in advance to arrange this.
