First Court on our Open day

Our College Open Days are aimed at students who are considering applying to Cambridge for entry in October 2019 or deferred entry in October 2020. (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 and academic staff. Lunch will be included free of charge. We usually start mid-morning with registration and refreshments, and finish mid-afternoon (so 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 to request a place on one of our Open Days, please complete the online booking form (above or on the left). We're sorry the College doesn't have adequate space to allow parents and friends to attend the students' part of the Open Day.  However, if they plan to come to Cambridge with you, they are welcome to come to the short parents' programme. 

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.
