Cambridge Open Days logoThe summer 2024 Cambridge University Open Days take place on Thursday 4 and Friday 5 July 2024. This is the biggest event of the year for prospective students - all Colleges and university departments take part.

Tip: There is no need to wait until July - if you would like to attend events earlier in the year, please see our events page for details of forthcoming events

The Open Days are organised by the central Cambridge team for students considering an application to Cambridge in Sept/Oct 2024. The format will be a hybrid online/in-person format, with online sessions, and in-person visits. Details and the programme will be available on the Cambridge Admissions website Open Days page nearer the time.

Booking is open! 

  • You will need to complete a booking form (click here) for the Cambridge Open Days. This covers the centrally-organised events including everything happening in person on the open days and the centrally-organised warm up webinars.
  • Your Cambridge Open Days booking will also give you access to tours of Christ's events on 4 and 5 July. We will also run some webinars which will need an additional booking form.


What will be on at Christ's?

We will be running College tours (including accommodation rooms) from 09:30 to 16:30 on both Thurs 4 and Fri 5 July. No separate booking is needed for these, you just book for the Cambridge Open Days and then turn up. The Christ's Admissions team will also be on hand to help with questions about applying to Christ's College. 

Around the 4 and 5 July, there will also be some Christ's online events, including the Christ's International Webinars on 9 and 10 July and an online look at our grounds and facilities for students who cannot visit in person.

Useful links



"Christ's is the Goldilocks college in terms of size so you'll never feel overwhelmed with all the students but you can still blend into the background if you want. When everything you need is within a stone's throw of the college, why choose anywhere else?"

We host Year 12 students from our link schools in Worcestershire, Herefordshire and North and North East Lincolnshire the night before the open days. We have already emailed schools about this so if you're from one of these areas, please look out for the sign up opportunity in school or speak with your head of Year 12.

We are unable to also host school groups or individual students from other areas. If you would like to check for rooms at other Colleges there's a list of College contact details (we recommend that you look up the link College for your area). Otherwise, or if you are travelling with a parent or guardian, please see this page.
