Saturday 25th April Mathematics only

Christ's College will be taking part in the University Open Days on Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd July. There will be no need to book with this College but you MUST make a booking at

Tuesday 1st September Science subjects (including Economics) 

Wednesday 2nd September Arts subjects (for Economics see Science subjects)

Our College Open Days are aimed at Year 12 school/college students who are considering applying to Cambridge for entry in October 2016 or deferred entry in October 2017. (Please be aware that Christ's does not accept applications for Veterinary Medicine.) There will be the opportunity to look around the College and to meet current students, Tutors, Directors of Study or other subject specialists. Lunch will be included free of charge. We usually start at 10.30am and finish around 3.00pm (so it's not really possible to attend more than one College Open Day on the same day although depending on your travel arrangements there may be some time for you to have a look around Cambridge). A student who came to one of our recent open days said "I found the College tour particularly enjoyable because it gave us a real insight into college life.   The Directors of Studies talks were also really useful because they told us what they are looking for and gave us more information about the courses which are unique to Cambridge."  If you'd like an invitation to one of our Open Days, please complete and return the on-line booking form (on the left). We're sorry the College doesn't have adequate space to allow parents and friends to attend the first part of the Open Day.  However, if they plan to come to Cambridge with you, they are welcome to come to the optional parents' talk and tour of the College, normally starting at 1.30pm sharp in the afternoon on a College Open Day. We aim to finish parents' programme at 3.00pm as well.

If you find you can't attend one of our open days, as a prospective applicant you may visit the College at any time. Please introduce yourself to the Porters as a prospective applicant and they will allow you to come in and look around. Information about visiting the College is available here.
