Postgrad Open Day

Postgraduate Open Day

The University of Cambridge hosted its first Postgraduate Open Day in November 2016. This unique event was organised by the Graduate Admissions Office in conjunction with the University's Departments and the Colleges. 

As part of this event, Churchill, Fitzwilliam, Girton, Lucy Cavendish, Murray Edwards and St Edmund's Colleges teamed up to offer students/applicants a free lunch and information session. 

Tours were timetabled so that those attending could visit at least two of these colleges.

The 2017 Open Day will be held on Friday 3 November.
