Undergraduate Study


Throughout the year a number of faculties and departments offer open days that focus on the specific courses. You’ll get to meet some of the lecturers, and see the libraries and other facilities.

The staff and students may be able to answer broader questions about life at the University as well, but if you’d like to see other places in Cambridge on the same day please check the timetable when you book. If you are likely to have time, it’s advisable to contact the other department/College you wish to visit in advance to check if it will be possible to do so.

Dates listed below are for information only – see the relevant department website for further information and updates. Department open day bookings typically open approximately two months prior to the event.
