University of Cambridge Open Days 2018

The next University of Cambridge Open Days will be held on Thursday 5 July and Friday 6 July 2018. The open days are large-scale events organised by the central Cambridge Admissions Office in conjunction with the University Colleges and departments, all of whom take part.

Cambridge Open Days are for Year 12 students (or equivalent) and mature applicants who are considering making an application in October 2018 for entry in October 2019 (or deferred entry in October 2020). Booking is now open, and essential to access the presentations and course sessions organised by the University.

The Open Days offer a great chance to find out what the University and Colleges have to offer, attend presentations on courses, the application process, student support, finance, and careers. You'll have the opportunity to talk to academic staff from the departments and Colleges, and undergraduate students will also be on hand to chat to about student life at Cambridge.

Events at Caius

All Colleges and departments are represented as part of the Cambridge Open Days, and Caius is no exception. We have a well-deserved reputation for offering particularly welcoming open days, with no need to book and plenty of opportunity to get a flavour of life at the College. You'll be able to meet and question academics who teach your chosen subject, and take tours of our beautiful Old Courts and our exceptional Fresher accommodation. You'll also get the chance to speak to our current students about life at Caius, and find out about the many clubs and societies on offer. Parents and guardians are welcome to attend and use the opportunity to ask us any questions. We appreciate that these days are busy and sometimes tiring, so we offer complimentary refreshments and lunch in our marquee - and we give potential applicants some small Caius-themed items to take away.

A full programme of events will be available shortly. In the meantime, you can get an insight into studying at Caius by watching our videos, reading our prospectus and following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. If you have any questions, do contact our admissions team on

We look forward to seeing you in July!


Our beautiful Old Courts are in the centre of Cambridge (at the top of King's Parade, next to Senate House). Our Fresher accommodation is located on West Road, next to the University's Sidgwick Site (home to the arts and humanities faculties) and the University Library.
