Undergraduate Study


 Update on coronavirus (COVID-19)

In light of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, all in-person outreach activities and events organised by Cambridge Admissions Office will be moved online (or cancelled where online delivery is not possible) until at least May 2021. This position will be regularly reviewed and updates posted here as well as on event webpages. 


The University and Colleges organise a large number of open days and events for prospective applicants each year. You don’t have to visit Cambridge to apply to the University but our events give you a chance to get a feel for the University, find out more about admissions procedures, courses and facilities, and to ask any questions you may have.
