Christ's College online webinars

At the moment, we are offering online events (or webinars) for prospective students to access from home.

The webinars are or prospective applicants who are considering an application to Cambridge in October 2020 (for Oct 2021 or deferred Oct 22 entry).

Once you have registered for a webinar, you will get an email with details of how to join the webinar. At the time of the webinar you will need to click on a link and enter the password you've been given. Please do not share these joining details - if a friend would also like to take part, ask them to do their own registration.

As long as you have an internet connection, you can access our webinars from a fixed computer, a laptop, a tablet or a smartphone.

After the webinar you will receive a follow-up email (normally the day after) with links to further information and resources.

When is the next Christ's webinar?

Please see the open days page to see when the next webinar is and complete the registration form if you'd like to take part. We're currently advertising webinars a few days before each one.

If you find the times inconvenient, note that over time we will provide some variations in the time of day for our webinars and ensure that at least some of each type of webinar are scheduled at times accessible to long-distance international students.

Christ's College: a look at the grounds and facilities

As it is not possible to visit Christ's College at the moment, in this webinar we will show prospective applicants a map and pictures of the grounds and facilities, talking you through what you are seeing. There will be an opportunity to type questions for us to answer as well.

These webinars are advertised on our open days page, normally a week or so before each webinar and registration is required. We will vary the time of day.

  • "I thought it was very informative and it provided great insight into life at Christ's College, the grounds and accommodation. The use of images made it easy to visualise."
  • "The speaker was very clear and detailed. The slides were well chosen also."
  • "I found it really useful and insightful. The pictures were very clear and the presentation worked well alongside the commentary. It was really helpful to hear about colleges rather than just reading information on websites as I think it allows for a greater understanding and view of the college."
Cambridge for beginners (UK Year 12 only)

If we ask how much you already know about studying at / applying to Cambridge on a scale of 1-10 and your answer would be 4 or less, this introductory session is for you. It is designed for UK Year 12 students (S5 Scotland, Y13 Northern Ireland) who have not had any talks about applying to Cambridge so far. It will cover the basics and give you information about next steps for finding out more.

This introductory webinar is advertised on our open days page and registration is required.

The first session is on 2 June...
  • if you're from outside the UK, see below instead (you need the information for applying from outside the UK)
  • if you've already had a Cambridge or Oxbridge talk or already know the very basics, please don't register for this introductory session - we recommend the 2 & 3 July open days instead.
Applying from outside the UK

If you are from outside the UK, we invite you to choose one webinar to register for out of those listed in the table on the Christ's international webinars page

A range of options for international applicants from 2 July until 9 July. We recommend that you choose the most suitable one for your country, bearing in mind the descriptions and time of day.


Further notes

  • When you join one of these webinars, your webcam and microphone will be turned off. You will, however, be able to type by clicking on Q&A at the bottom of your screen and typing in your question. If you're on a laptop, the Q&A button will already be on your screen. If you're on a phone, you'll need to tap at the bottom of the screen to make the button appear.
