BME Open Day

Welcome! On the 24th 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. We are expecting the programme to run from 10am to 4pm.
