Cambridge University Summer Open Days

The next University of Cambridge Open Days will be held on Thursday 6 July and Friday 7 July 2017. 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.

Find out more about the talks, tours, Q&A sessions - and refreshments! - at Caius over the two days here.

Cambridge Open Days are for Year 12 students (or equivalent) and mature applicants who are considering making an application in October 2017 for entry in October 2018 (or deferred entry in October 2019). 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.

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 with our students. 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.

We're right in the heart of Cambridge at the top of King's Parade - we look forward to seeing you in July. If you have any questions in the meantime, do contact our admissions team on
