King's BME Open Day

Please note - Booking is now closed for the 2019 BME open day



On the 24th of June 2019, King’s College will be hosting its second BME Open Day. 

This one-day event will be open to prospective students aged 16+ from Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds. The aim of the event is to give BME students an opportunity to experience life at Cambridge and ask questions about anything from admissions to student life here at King’s. The event will feature a talk on admissions, a Meet the Students event in which current students and academics will be answering subject-specific questions, tours of King’s College (including the Chapel) and many more engaging activities. Lunch will be provided and support is available for travel on a needs-assessed basis. Please contact the Outreach and Schools' liaison office for more information.

Booking is now closed for the 2019 BME open day
