Postgraduate Open Day

student open day

After the success of last year's event, the University of Cambridge is proud to be hosting another Cambridge Postgraduate Open Day on Friday 3rd November 2017.

This unique event is organised by the Graduate Admissions Office in conjunction with the Colleges and University's Departments. The day is open to all undergraduate students and graduates who are considering applying to the University of Cambridge for graduate study at Masters or PhD level.

During the event, participants can attend a registration hub where detailed information about the graduate application process is available; current graduate students and Graduate Admissions Office staff will be on hand to answer questions about postgraduate study and student life in the vibrant city of Cambridge. In addition, prospective applicants will have the chance to learn more about individual courses and talk to academic staff from the departments and Colleges.

During the event, you will also be able to:

  • attend presentations on courses
  • take tours of university facilities and visit Departments and Colleges
  • talk to student services about topics such as funding, accommodation, disability resources and career advice

Overseas applicants will be able to address any queries to the International Students team who will be present.
