Four student helpers in third court



Christ's will take part in the Cambridge Open Days on 7&8 July. Booking is Open.
(Students outside the UK should also register interest for an international webinar)

The next Christ's College-specific open day will be 9 September for students planning to apply this October. You can register your interest if you'd like to receive an email when booking opens.

This College Open Day includes online sessions on 9 Sept and an option for an in-person tour the following week for those who want to also visit. The sessions will enable you to meet our staff and students and there will be (camera-on) subject-specific meetings.


What is a College Open Day?

Second Court
 Second Court and the Fellows' Building

Our College Open Days offer opportunities to meet us, see the College and find out more when it suits you in the year preceding an application:

  • October - about a year before application
  • February - about 8 months before application
  • [July as part of the Cambridge Open Days] - info and booking
  • September - just before application - register interest

Please see the Open Days and events page for forthcoming College Open Day dates.

For students at school in England, the October and February dates will be in "Year 12" and the September event will be in "Year 13". Of course, school years are called different things in different school systems and we also welcome students on a gap year, mature applicants etc. We therefore tend to describe the events in relation to when you would apply to Cambridge e.g. 'those applying in October 2022', 'those applying in October 2023'.


What happens on a College Open Day? 

Student talking in blue T shirtOur College open days are online with an optional opportunity to visit the College.

For the online part, there is a pre-recorded talk that you watch in advance and then on the day we run live webinars and meetings in Zoom to allow you to meet students, academic staff and admissions staff and get your questions answered. After the event you will receive a detailed follow-up email with links for further research and temporary access to some session recordings in case there was something you were not able to attend live (we do not expect students to miss school to attend sessions).

On the second day we run in-person tours for those who would like to visit the College.

We've now run quite a lot of online open days - September 2020, October 2020, February 2021, September 2021 and October 2021 as well as similar programmes during the July 2020 and 2021 University Open Days. We've had good feedback from participants so please don't be put off by the online parts if you would prefer in-person - there is a lot we can do to help online

Depending on the availability of rooms, we may be able to help you with this. Please don't leave your request to the last minute, however, as there is some paperwork that we will need you to sign etc. before your stay.
