Summer Open Days

Our Summer Open Days will be open to all on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th July. Tours of Peterhouse will be available all day from 8:30AM until 6:00PM, along with the chance to chat to current undergraduates and members of the Admissions Team. There will also be the chance to meet Directors of Studies over a cup of tea and a snack 12:00-1:00PM each day, along with Admissions Presentations with an Admissions Tutor at 11:30 and 16:00. Each presentation will be the same and parents are very welcome to join us. We will also have presentations on student life from current students, these will be advertised here in due course and on the day itself. Although there is no need to book with the College to attend the July Open Days, you should book to attend the overall Cambridge Open Days. Further information and booking for the Cambridge Open Days is available from the University website.

Please note that some of the arrangements and timings may change in the run-up to the event. Please check the website for updates nearer to the events.

Throughout the days, the Admissions Team will be available to answer College- and subject-specific questions about the Cambridge courses, Peterhouse, entry requirements, the application process and assessment of candidates. We will have subject information available all day and some Fellows will be around between 12:00-1:00PM on both Thursday 5th and Friday 6th July:

In addition to the Subject Fair, our Admissions Tutors will be giving presentations on the application process and the assessment of candidates at 11:30 and 16:00, and you will have the chance to ask plenty of questions afterwards. These talks are open to all without booking, and we usually have plenty of spaces, but if numbers exceed capacity, admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
