Open Days 8 and 9 July 2021
We will be participating in the July Open Days (8 and 9 July 2021) and more information about individual sessions can be found below in due course.
Welcome to the Open Days at King's College Cambridge!
Our Admissions Tutor, Dr Zoe Adams, has recorded a welcome to King's and explanation of Cambridge video. It gives an overview of how the collegiate system works and what studying at Cambridge and King's is like. This is a presentation for prospective students lasting 30 minutes and we hope that you will find it helpful.
When you are thinking about making an application to University, it's usually best to start looking at the courses you want to apply to, to find out about the content and structure of the course. You can find more information about the subjects offered at King's below.
Once you know which subject you want to apply for, it's important to develop further knowledge in your subject. Successful applicants have engaged with their subject beyond the school curriculum in a variety of ways. There is no perfect formula for this, your academic journey is as individual as you are. If you are still at the beginning of this or are not sure how to continue, we have collected some resources for super-curricular engagement, that will hopefully be useful for you!
Start reading about the application process early enough! Cambridge has an earlier application deadline than other Universities and we also have some additional forms you have to fill in, as well as pre-interview assessments you may have to register for (depending on your subject). Especially if you are applying with limited support, it can be useful to get in touch with a college admissions office by email early on. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have!
