Cambridge Open Days 2017

The next University of Cambridge Open Days will be held on Thursday 6 July and Friday 7 July 2017. The open days are large-scale events organised by the central Cambridge Admissions Office in conjunction with the University Colleges and departments.

Cambridge Open Days are for Year 12 students (or equivalent) and mature applicants who are considering making an application in October 2017 for entry in October 2018 (or deferred entry in October 2019).

Attendees will find out what the University and Colleges have to offer, attend presentations on courses, the application process, student support, finance, and careers. They will have the opportunity to talk to academic staff from the departments and Colleges, and 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 days and Department open days webpages for further details.

Due to limited places, it is only possible to attend one of the Cambridge Open Days (6 or 7 July). Attendees wishing to spend two days in Cambridge can 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.

Cambridge Open Days 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.
