Open Days


Coming on an Open Day is a great way to see Selwyn and Cambridge, to find out what the courses are really like and also meet some of the people who might be teaching you, as well as some current students.

When are the next Open Days?

We are hosting two more Open Days in 2020.  We hope to be able to offer an in-person event if possible.  However, we will also be offering virtual alternatives to reach out to prospective students and hope that you will enjoy getting to know the College in these ways.

Our final Open Days in 2020 will be held on the following dates:

  • Thursday 17 September – virtual Open Day
    See information below.
  • Friday 18 September – Open Day / virtual Open Day
    See information below and register interest on our booking form.
    More information and the booking can be found here.

Open Days, 17 & 18 September 2020 

As well as hosting our Open Day on 18 September at the College, Selwyn will be offering you the chance to join in live video conferences on 17 September as follows 

9.45am Admissions Tutors Talk and Q&A
11.30am Parents talk from the Bursar and Senior Tutor with Q&A
Various times - Subject talks and information from Directors of Studies with Q&A

Some of these will also be available to view on our Virtual Open Day page as recordings, after the live events.

You will need to book for these live events.  An invitation will then be sent to you via Zoom.  The booking form can be found here  - please remember to state which event(s) you wish to attend (subject sessions will be added nearer the time).

These Open Days are aimed at prospective applicants in Year 12 (or equivalent), together with any parents or supporters. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore our University and Colleges virtually and get an insight into what it is like to be a student at the University of Cambridge.

The University is also running virtual events and you also need to book for these, separately to the Selwyn live events. Please see the University webpages for full details -

The Open Days and events above are for students who are considering an application to Cambridge in October 2020 for entry in October 2021 or deferred entry in October 2022.
