Open Days

The best way to find out about life at Caius, and at Cambridge as a whole, is to visit us. It gives you a feel for the University and the city, and most importantly allows you to meet students and academics and ask questions.

At Gonville & Caius College we hold two all-subject Open Day events during the year, in Summer and in Autumn, both of which include talks, tours, meeting academics and students as well as complimentary refreshments and lunch.

Our Summer event is in early July and coincides with the two days of Cambridge Open Days, organised by the University. This is an opportunity to see colleges and departments across the University, so you can gain a real overview of the possibilities here. Caius has a reputation for offering particularly welcoming summer open days: we don't ask you to book, and we offer lots of student-led tours around our beautiful Old Courts and outstanding Freshers' accommodation. You can meet our academics, hear talks on individual subjects, and then take a break in our marquee for some coffee or lunch.

In Autumn, we run a smaller Open Day on a Saturday in mid-September, for which booking is required. This event gives prospective applicants the opportunity to explore the College with current students, speak to Admissions Tutors and generally get a feel for life at Caius. You are more than welcome to come and see us in Summer and Autumn, the events are not identical. Equally, if you have only just decided Caius might be on your shortlist, you are very welcome to come and find out more about us.

In addition to the all-subject events, Caius participates in the Mathematics Open Days run by the Faculty; these take place in Spring, usually at the end of April / beginning of May.

We also run stand-alone events such as our renowned Women in Economics Day, led by our Director of Studies for Economics Dr Victoria Bateman and featuring prominent speakers, as well as a panel of students and recent graduates discussing the course and career opportunities.

If you're not able to get here for an Open Day, prospective applicants are very welcome to come and look around the College or make an appointment to speak to the Admissions Administrator.

We look forward to meeting you at Caius!
