Students can learn about life and study at the College’s virtual event 

Lucy Cavendish College will be holding its virtual Spring Open Day on 17 February 2021. The event is designed for prospective students who are considering applying to the University of Cambridge later this year (those who plan to apply in October 2021 for October 2022/deferred October 2023 entry). 

The Open Day will give students the chance to learn more about life and study at Lucy Cavendish College and the University of Cambridge during this particularly exciting point in its history. Having previously been a College for mature-age (21+) women, it is now accepting applications from all suitably qualified students, regardless of age or gender.  

Here are just some of the reasons to choose Lucy Cavendish College:

  • Diverse, inclusive and friendly community
  • Great location - close to all University departments, Sports Centre and the city 
  • Great study spaces and library open 24/7
  • Amazing personal and academic mentors 
  • Lively social and sporting scene
  • Beautiful gardens, gym, bar and cafe
  • Full programme of academic study skills, personal and career development

Take a look at the below timetable of live Zoom sessions and book here to secure your place:

Open Day attendees from the UK will normally be in Year 12 or equivalent, though students from the penultimate school year in other countries, and prospective mature applicants are also very welcome. There are sessions for parents, guardians and supporters too.

The College will need to limit numbers to 300 per session, so do book early to avoid disappointment. Come and join us to find out what sets Lucy Cavendish apart! We will also be updating our virtual Open Day page and will release links to sessions closer to the time.
