Visit Gonville & Caius

The best way to find out more about what it’s like to study here is to come and visit. We welcome school visits to the College from students in Year 9 and above and seek to accommodate as many requests as possible in our busy schedule. This is also a great chance to meet current undergraduates who can share their experiences of applying to and studying at the University of Cambridge.

A typical programme might include a talk by our Schools Liaison Officer, Katy Lewis, about university and Cambridge specifically; a tour of the College (often led by current undergraduates) and a Q & A session with undergraduates. Many other activities are also possible, and the programme for each visit is tailored to the group. If you have specific ideas for your visit, please let us know. Apart from transport to and from the College, everything is free of charge, including lunch in the College dining hall for day visits where numbers permit. To request a visit, please use our online form here

We host these visits into Gonville & Caius for school groups with a range of aims. Often they are a great way to raise students' aspirations and attainment; proving to them that competitive universities such as Cambridge are not beyond their reach and giving them a taste of University life. Some groups we host are among the top achievers in their school and are seriously considering top University applications. For groups such as this we can offer information about Cambridge Admissions and sessions on Personal Statements and Interviews. Whatever the purpose of your school visit, here at Caius we are keen to make you welcome and provide a stimulating, engaging visit for your students.
