Welcome to Trinity: Open Days for prospective students

Students, staff and Fellows at Trinity are looking forward to welcoming prospective applicants to the College on Thursday 6 and Friday 7 July, in conjunction with the University of Cambridge Open Days.

Trinity will be open between 10am and 4pm on these days for student-led tours of College, talks by Fellows, and drop-in sessions to discuss courses. Entrance is via Great Gate on Trinity Street. Head to the dining Hall in Great Court to pick up a prospectus and meet current Trinity students. There is no need to book – sessions are on a first come, first served basis.

Admissions Tutor, Adrian Poole, said the Open Days were a great opportunity for prospective applicants to visit the College, meet students and Fellows, learn more about courses, and see a typical undergraduate room.

Open Days offer a great chance to imagine what it’s like to work and play in Trinity’s wonderful environment, with its rich history and its openness to the future, where every day you’ll meet new people, new opportunities.

He said it was important to see beyond the grand buildings and get a sense of life at Trinity and what the College provided for students.

If you’re talented, enthusiastic and ambitious, you’ll get a warm welcome and lots of support at Trinity. Come to Hall, enjoy tea and cake, and talk to current students to find out what it is like studying here.
