Virtual BME Open Day 21 June 2021

Welcome! On the 21st June 2021, King’s College will be hosting its Fourth BME Open Day. This event will be run as a virtual Open Day again this year and is 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 gain an insight into life at Cambridge and ask questions about anything from admissions to student life here at King’s. Please check back to this website on the day as well, as we will update this with further resources and links. 

We are expecting the program to run from 2:00pm to 5:00pm and will provide details of the sessions and information on how to sign up in due course. 

We are looking for high performing students who show the potential to do well at A-Level or equivalent. Particularly, we would like to encourage capable students who have been hesitant about applying to Cambridge to register. You will have opportunities to hear from current students about their experiences. For any further information please don’t hesitate to contact our outreach officers at or the King’s BME officer at

Booking for the sessions is open now. We hope to see you soon!
