Open Days

If you are a sixth form student thinking of applying to Cambridge, our Open Days will give you the opportunity to meet current students and Directors of Studies and find out the answers to all your questions: What is it like studying at Cambridge? What are the interviews like? What are the interviewers looking for? Is this the course I want to study? 

You will also have the chance to see student rooms and meet current students. Teachers and accompanying parents and supporters are very welcome at these events.

Booking for the College Open Days is essential. There is a limit to the numbers which can be accepted for these days and early application is advised. To book a place on a College Open Day, please complete and return the relevant booking form. Bookings for the University Open Days are taken by the Cambridge Admissions Office; once you have booked with the Cambridge Admissions Office, no further booking with Girton is required to visit us on the University Open Days.
