Year 12 events in Cambridge

View of Gibbs Building

On this page, we have listed selected events in Cambridge for Year 12 prosepctive students.

Do bear in mind that subject input from any Cambridge College will be useful, even if you are not sure if you will want to apply to that College. If you are not sure which event would be best for your subject, do consider attending the Cambridge Open Day on 6 or 7 July, as all subjects have taster lectures and course presentations at this event.

No matter which event you attend, whilst you are in Cambridge, you would be very welcome to visit King's as well if you have time. We are always open to prospective students.

Year 12 students from state schools in King's link areas are welcome to request King's link area accommodation the night before any of the events taking place in Cambridge. This applies to students at school in Northumberland, County Durham, Hartlepool, Darlington, Middlesbrough, Stockton-on-Tees, Redcar and Cleveland, York, East Riding of Yorkshire, and Hull. Please read the information before you email us.
