Open Days at Trinity: find out more

Are you curious about studying at Cambridge but confused by the college system, or want to know more about applying?

What’s college life like? What will I learn on my course? Which course is for me? How does the admissions process work?All these questions and more you can ask at Trinity’s Open Days – on Monday 25 June for Arts subjects and Tuesday 26 June for Science subjects.

You’ll have the chance hear from Trinity’s Admissions Tutor, Dr Glen Rangwala, meet teaching staff and students, and take a student-led tour of the College.

Dr Rangwala said:

‘Open Days offer a great insight into College life – and they are a fantastic opportunity to find out more, whether that’s about the admissions process, courses or living at Trinity.

We encourage you to visit, and to bring along a relative if you’d like to. It’s a relaxed way to look around the College and discover what studying at Cambridge is really like.’

Places on Trinity College Open Days are limited so you need to book.

In addition to Trinity’s Open Days, the College will be open for informal visits and student-led tours during the Cambridge University Open Days on Thursday 5 and Friday 6 July.

There is no need to book these events. You’ll find welcoming Porters at Trinity’s Great Gate on Trinity Street. Head to the Dining Hall in Great Court to pick up a prospectus and meet students. Subject talks will be given by teaching staff – more details will be published on the College website soon.

If you can’t make any of the open days, you can get a flavour of Trinity life through our Virtual College Tour.  You can also view typical undergraduate accommodation at the College.

Meanwhile, for a more in-depth experience, Trinity’s residentials offer students keenly interested in their subject and with a good academic record the chance to stay in College, meet Fellows and undergraduates, take part in a range of social activities, and explore the city of Cambridge.

Trinity student, Juliette Wrixon, is now in her first year of Engineering. She said:

I only applied after attending the Women in Stem Trinity outreach programme and the support provided was instrumental to my successful application. Without this opportunity I would not have considered applying. I am also grateful for all the opportunities my school has offered me over the years.

This summer there are four residentials at Trinity, which are open to students aged 16 or over at UK schools. These free events are a key part of Trinity’s widening participation scheme and prospective students from families with little or no tradition of higher education are particularly welcome to apply, as well as those from schools that don’t send many applicants to Cambridge.

Places are limited and information about how to apply can be found below.
