My favourite moments when giving tours often come when I make mistakes - like trying to open the wrong door, or not knowing the answer - and I can see the students thinking 'I could do better than that!'. It's that moment when you take Cambridge off the pedestal, and see it as a real place, with real people, and so also a realistic possibility.

Visiting the College

Visiting the College is the best way to find out about Peterhouse -- you can talk to the Admissions Team, teaching staff and, perhaps most importantly, current undergraduates. You can also see some of the facilities and resources available to our students.

If you are interested in applying to Peterhouse, we would be delighted to meet you. The best time to visit is on an Open Day, or if you are unable to visit on those days then you can book an individual College tour by emailing us with your preferred date and time.

The Admissions Team are also happy to respond to specific queries if you can't find what you're looking for on our FAQs page.
