Postgraduate Open Day

Booking is now open for the Cambridge Postgraduate Open Day on November 2. Throughout the day, you'll have the opportunity to meet with academic and department staff, as well as current postgraduate students, to find out about life and studying at Cambridge. During the morning of the event, you can come and visit Wolfson and meet our Admissions Tutors and take a look around College. In the afternoon, you will have the chance to learn more about individual courses by talking to academic staff and by visiting open departments/faculties or by speaking to department staff and students at the central Exhibition Hub.

The day is open to all those seeking to apply for postgraduate study at the University. Book your place online.

We look forward to meeting you then!

Mature Students Shadowing Scheme

The CUSU Shadowing Scheme brings UK students to Cambridge for three days. Prospective students come to Cambridge and spend time with a current undergraduate, studying a subject that you are interested in, who you 'shadow'. The idea is to give those who have little or no experience of university a taste of student life at Cambridge, in real time, with real people. We especially welcome applications from those who would be the first in their immediate family to attend university.

If you're interested in studying at Cambridge as a 21+ student, come along and shadow a current student for 3 days to experience University of Cambridge student life first hand.
The Scheme allows you to shadow supervisions, lectures and labs where possible, and also provides a variety of social activities to see what student life is like.

To register your interest for the next Shadowing Scheme please email

Visiting Wolfson College

You are welcome to visit Wolfson College informally throughout the year. Please contact the Undergraduate Administrator or Student Recruitment Officer to arrange a tour of the college. Booking is required, as some days may not be suitable. Please note that it is not usually possible for you to meet with an Admissions Tutor during such a visit; in order to do so you will need to attend one of the scheduled Open Days.
