Postgraduate Open Day (1 Nov 2019)

The University of Cambridge Postgraduate Open day is designed for final year students or graduates who are seeking to enter into postgraduate study at Masters or PhD level.  

During the day there will be detailed information about the graduate application process. Current graduate students and Graduate Admissions staff will be on hand to answer questions about postgraduate study and student life in the vibrant city of Cambridge. Staff will also be available to give you advice on the application process, funding opportunities and careers after your course.

You will also have the opportunity to visit some of the Colleges, find out about their unique character and see how College life complements academic life in Cambridge.

Outreach Events


The Subject Matters (Oct 2019)

Aimed at Year 10 and Year 11 students and their parents or supporters, The Subject Matters events offer sessions in which experienced Admissions Tutors give key advice about making informed A Level (or equivalent) subject choices to support students to put themselves in the best position for their studies after sixth form.

Students will also be able to participate in an academic taster session in either the Arts and Humanities or the Sciences, as well as the opportunity to ask current undergraduates questions, giving them a valuable insight into university life and study.

The Subject Matters events usually take place on Saturdays and are open to both students and their parents or supporters. The sessions are an excellent opportunity for parents or supporters to find out more about how their student can start exploring subjects beyond their school curriculum, and how they can support them with that.
