Thinking about Cambridge?

Due to the current situation with Covid-19 (Coronavirus) all events are cancelled for this academic year. 

However, the admissions team and the outreach staff are still very much on hand to answer any questions you may have about access, outreach, applications and admissions. Please do get in touch, and we welcome you to register any interest for school visits, experience days, taster days and open days from September 2020. We’re using this time to plan some exciting new events so please let us know what you would like to see in the next academic year. What would be most useful to students and teachers? How can we engage and motivate young people?

Please email questions and ideas to or

We normally run a substantial programme of events designed for students (school-age and mature), school groups and offer holders. Find out more below:
