Open Days and Outreach

Join us for a Virtual Open Day to talk to current students, find out about applying and ask our Admissions Tutors your questions, or sign up for an Outreach event where you can get a taste of life as a mature student at Wolfson. We are also now able to offer in person tours of the College to prospective students.

Visiting Wolfson College

In person tours of the College are now available for prospective students! 

We have some guidelines for tours at this time to ensure everyone remains safe:

  •  Tours must be booked in advance

  • You must be accompanied by either a member of staff or a student ambassador

  • Please use hand gel when requested

  • You may be asked to wear a mask by your guide (unless you are exempt) – this could be due to entering small or busy areas, or for their own reassurance. Please respect these requests.

  • You may bring a maximum of two other people with you. 

Book here for tours

You can also visit our excellent virtual tour or take a video tour with current student Jake.

If you have any questions about tours, such as availability on other dates, please contact the Outreach and Student Recruitment Officer.

University of Cambridge Open Days

In light of the latest advice about the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, all in-person outreach activities and events organised by Cambridge Admissions Office have been cancelled for the time being. These events are now going ahead virtually.

The next Undergraduate Open Days are scheduled for 16th and 17th September 2021. The latest information will be available on the main University site. We recommend registering and looking out for the Information Sessions for Mature Students.

Virtual Personal Statement Workshop

To join the waiting list please email the Outreach and Student Recruitment Officer

In September we held a fully booked personal statement workshop, join our mailing list to be told of similar events.

Writing your personal statement can seem daunting as a mature student.

What is Cambridge looking for? What is important to include? What is irrelevant? How can you present yourself well? The Wolfson Admissions team has read thousands of personal statements from mature students and is here to help!

The workshop will take place over Zoom. The first 45 minutes will include a presentation, an interactive exercise and a general Q&A. If you have submitted a current draft of your personal statement, you will also be given a 5 minute individual time slot to receive feedback from Admissions staff. 

The workshop is interactive and you need to come ready to join in and share ideas, though don't worry, you don't have to read your draft to the group!

Virtual Offer Holders' Events

We hold a series of sessions via Zoom for both Undergraduate and Postgraduate offer holders. These sessions in June and July allow you to meet key staff and current students and have any questions answered.
