General sessions, University support services and facilities

Explore our Open Days programme below. Please book the sessions you want to attend via the session booking form, which we'll email to registered attendees. You can view details of your booked sessions and access virtual sessions through your Open Days ticket.

This year all of our general sessions will be held virtually. We are running a series of Warm-up Webinars in the week before the Cambridge Open Days, which will cover a range of general topics such as Student Finance and Applying to Cambridge. You can view details of these below.

On 7 and 8 July, many of the University Support Services will be available in the Student Services Centre Atrium from 9:30-16:30 for a friendly chat and to provide information. For attendees who are not visiting in person, staff will also be available to answer questions online via live chat. There will also be two ‘live’ virtual Q&A events about student life. Check the schedules below for full details.
