'Consider Cambridge' Undergraduate Admissions Event

23 September 2017 at Harris Westminster Sixth Form, London

The four 'mature' Cambridge colleges, led by Lucy Cavendish, will be hosting an event in London on Saturday, 23 September from 10am, to enable potential applicants of age 21+ to consider Cambridge as a university option.  You will have an opportunity to hear more about the entrance requirements and application process at Cambridge, and meet Admissions Tutors and students from the age 21+ Colleges. 

The venue is Harris Westminster Sixth Form, Steel House, 11 Tothill Street, London, SW1H 9LH, and the nearest tube stations are St James' Park and Westminster.  Book your place here.

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.

The dates for this year's scheme are 9 to 11 November 2017.

Apply here before 15 October.

Postgraduate Open Day 2017

We are hosting the next Cambridge Postgraduate Open Day on Friday 3 November 2017.

The day is open to all those seeking to apply for postgraduate study at the University and will provide opportunities to explore the College, talk to Department academics and find out more about the application process.

We look forward to seeing you on the day!

Book your place here.

University Open Days: July 2018

Our annual open days, timed to coincide with the Cambridge Open Days, gives prospective applicants who consider a future undergraduate application to Cambridge as a 21+ candidate an opportunity to meet our Admissions team and specialists in selected subjects, and learn more about the entrance requirements and how to make an application.  Bookings usually open here in May, and if you are coming to Cambridge for our open day we recommend you also book a place on one of the Cambridge Open Days, as the two events complement each other.

Cambridge Graduate Course in Medicine (A101) Joint Admissions Event

The four Colleges at Cambridge who admit for the Cambridge Graduate Course in Medicine (CGCM) host a joint admissions event for potential applicants in August/September.  Bookings usually open here in mid-summer.

Visiting Wolfson College

You are welcome to visit Wolfson College informally throughout the year. Please contact the Undergraduate Administrator 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.

Wolfson College also participates in the Cambridge University Student Union Shadowing Scheme.
