September Open Day

Friday 18 September 2020

On Friday, 18 September 2020, Christ's will take part in a Cambridge Colleges Open Day which allows you to attend both a detailed College Open Day at Christ's (or another College) and to visit several more Cambridge Colleges for a tour on the same day.

If you would like to visit, see one or more Colleges and talk to us just before submitting your UCAS application (15 October deadline!), this open day should be very helpful.


Morning Programme at Christ's or one of the other Colleges (10.00-13.00) - BOOKING REQUIRED

The day starts with a programme of talks and sessions at Christ's (or another College if you prefer):

The List of Colleges (including Christ's) offering a morning programme will be confirmed nearer the time.

Last year there was a choice of 9 Colleges

If you'd like to attend the morning at Christ's (including a talk, College tours and subject meetings), a booking form will be available in late August. Please register your interest for the 18 September open day if you would like to receive an email when booking opens.

If you would prefer to attend the morning events at another College, you will need to complete the form on that College's website nearer the time. For full details about the programme and information on how to book, please check the individual College websites linked in the table above nearer the time.

Afternoon Drop-in Tours (13.00-16.00)

In the afternoon, you can visit as many of the Colleges listed below as you like for drop-in tours from 13:00 and 16:00. These informal tours may involve student helpers giving guided tours, or Colleges may provide a welcome desk and maps for visitors to explore the grounds and rooms themselves.

Any students who did not attend the detailed morning at Christ's, are welcome to drop-in for a College tour.

The list of Colleges (including Christ's) offering afternoon tours will be confirmed nearer the time. Last year 15 Colleges offered this.

The afternoon tours are open to all prospective students and accompanying parents & guardians - no further booking is required.


How to Book

Once booking opens, you will need to fill in a booking form on the website of one of the Colleges offering the morning programme (links will be above nearer the time). Your booking for a place on a morning programme will also enable you to attend the drop-in afternoon tours at the other colleges.

Please register your interest for the 18 September open day if you would like to receive an email when booking is open in late August.


Future dates

This open day is an annual event. Future dates are:

  • Friday 18 September 2020
  • Friday 17 September 2021
  • Friday 16 September 2022

Circular lawn in first court, Christ's College, Cambridge

What's happening at Christ's?

In the morning we'll be doing a detailed open day programme for students who will apply in October 2020 for 2021 (or deferred 2022 entry). Post-qualification applicants, international students and mature students applying in October 2020 are also welcome. There will be a talk, subject meetings and a student-led College tour for students who have booked a place. If you're considering an application to Christ's, this should be really helpful, and if you're struggling to choose a College at this stage, it will give you a good introduction to what a College can offer to help with your choice!

In the afternoon, we'll be doing College tours for drop-in visitors. These will be led by current Christ's students leaving every 10 minutes or so. We hope that you'll come and visit us! We're on St Andrew's Street (CB2 3BU). Parents and guardians are also welcome to join in - just drop in any time between 13:00 and 16:00
