Event description


The University of Cambridge and its Colleges will be opening their doors for the Cambridge Open Days on Thursday 5 July and Friday 6 July 2018. These events are for prospective applicants in Year 12 (or the equivalent) and prospective mature applicants (aged 21 or over) only.

For more information please visit

Please note that we are no longer taking bookings for University and Colleges tickets for Thursday 5 July and Friday 6 July. Colleges Only tickets are still available for both Cambridge Open Days.

University and Colleges ticket

A University and Colleges ticket allows you to access:

  • general presentations, such as Applying to Cambridge and Student Life
  • course presentations
  • the undergraduate Colleges

Please note that for the majority of general and course presentations, priority will be given to prospective students - unfortunately, we can't guarantee access for parents and supporters.

If you book a University and Colleges ticket, you don't need to book a Colleges Only ticket as well for the same day.

To enable as many prospective students as possible to attend, we can only allow you to book a full access University and Colleges ticket for one of the Open Days. If you're looking to make a two-day visit to Cambridge, please book a Colleges Only ticket for the other day. You'll need to make two separate bookings via Eventbrite (one for each ticket type) to do this.

Colleges Only ticket

This ticket type is recommended for those who don't want to attend the presentations, or for those who are attending the full Open Day on one day and would like the opportunity to visit Colleges on the other day.

As a student at Cambridge, you'll be based in one of the University's undergraduate Colleges. Much more than a hall of residence your College is also where you eat and do a lot of your socialising, receive academic and pastoral support, and often (though not always) receive small-group teaching.

The Colleges will be open throughout the Open Days, so we're offering the option to book a Colleges Only ticket. This will give you access to the 29 undergraduate Colleges, but does not grant you entry to the general and course presentations.

Some Colleges will also be running their own events on Thursday 5 and Friday 6 July, for which separate booking with the relevant College will be required. A Colleges Only ticket will not grant you entry to these events. A full list of College Open Days can be found here.

If you are a teacher and/or HE Adviser, please book a Teacher/HE Adviser ticket, which will allow you to access the general presentations, course presentations and undergraduate Colleges.
