Undergraduate Study


Cambridge Open Days 

Join us on Thursday 4 July or Friday 5 July 2024 for our next undergraduate Open Day.

Cambridge Open Days are aimed at prospective applicants from Year 12 (or equivalent) and mature applicants (aged 21 or over), together with their parents or supporters, to help them learn more about the University.

Alongside the Open Days in July, we will be running Warm-Up Webinars, covering topics such as applying to Cambridge, how to pick your College and financial support available during your studies.

We are also offering a smaller in-person Open Day on Friday 13 September 2024. More details about our September Open Day, including how to book a place, will be updated on this webpage over the summer. To receive an email once bookings are live, subscribe to our student newsletter.

What to expect

During the Open Day you can find out all about our courses, the Colleges and departments, University facilities, the application process, student life and finance via:

  • Information stands
  • Course presentations and sample lectures
  • College and department tours
  • Q&A sessions with current students and staff

You do not need to book for any Open Day sessions (Eg General Support, College or Subject Sessions), apart from Veterinary Medicine which is linked in the programme.

The programme will run from 9:30am to 4:30pm (UK time) and will be the same on both days so you will only need to attend one day. This will give as many people as possible the opportunity to attend an Open Day at Cambridge.
