An undergraduate volunteer talks to attendees

Summer Open Days

Our Summer Open Days will be open to all on Thursday 6th and Friday 7th 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 attend a subject fair and meet Directors of Studies over a cup of tea and a snack 12:00-1:00PM each day, along with Admissions Presentations from an Admissions Tutor (details will be posted here in due course). 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.

Subject Fair

We will be holding a subject fair from 12:00-1:00PM on both Thursday 6th and Friday 7th July. Current students, academic staff, Directors of Studies and Admissions Tutors 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'll be updating this page regularly in the months running up to the Open Day with updates on who's coming, so keep checking this page in the run-up to the event. There will be lots of current students around to help on the day, but ones who are representing their subject in place of a Fellow will be listed here closer to the event.

College admissions talks

In addition to the Subject Fair, our Admissions Tutors will be giving presentations on the application process and the assessment of candidates at 11:45AM and 4:00PM, 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.
