Cambridge Open Days

The 2016 University of Cambridge Open Days will be held Thursday 30 June and Friday 1 July 2016. The open days are large-scale events organised by the central Cambridge Admissions Office in conjunction with the university Colleges and departments.

The Cambridge Open Days are for Year 12 students (or equivalent), and mature applicants, who are considering making an application in October 2016 for entry in October 2017 (or deferred entry to October 2018).

Cambridge Open Day attendees will find out what the University and Colleges have to offer, attend presentations on courses, the application process, student support, finance, and careers.

Attendees will have the opportunity to talk to academic staff from the departments and Colleges. Undergraduate students will also be on hand to talk to about student life at Cambridge.

All Colleges and departments will be represented as part of the Cambridge Open Day. Many of the Colleges and departments will be open for drop in visitors but some may require additional booking, please see the Colleges open day and Department open day webpages for further details.

Due to limited places it is only possible to attend one of the Cambridge Open Days (30 June or 1 July). Attendees wishing to spend two days in Cambridge may book onto the Cambridge Open Days event on one day and a College-specific event on the other day. Booking for both days is essential.

The Cambridge Open Day events are only for Year 12 students (or equivalent), and mature applicants. We are unable to accommodate younger students or additional guests that exceed the two supporter tickets available. For details of events for younger students please see our events listing.
