Upcoming virtual Open Day

Lucy Cavendish College Spring Open Day- February 17th 

*We are now no longer able to accept bookings after midnight on February 5th*

Lucy Cavendish College will be holding its first ever virtual Spring Open Day on the 17th February 2021. We have designed the programme mainly for prospective students who are considering applying to the University of Cambridge later this year (meaning you plan to apply in October 2021 for October 2022/deferred October 2023 entry). 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. We would also be delighted if parents, guardians and supporters could join us.

The Open Day will give you the chance to learn more about life and study at Lucy Cavendish College, 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.  Most excitingly, it has chosen to take a unique stance on widening participation, aiming to become the first University of Cambridge College to admit a majority of its students from under-represented or disadvantaged backgrounds and its long-term goal is to build a student population that is representative of wider UK society.

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
