Virtual tours of the college

If you can't attend one of our guided virtual tours during the Open Days (see details above), you can still have a look around the college grounds, our library and the famous King's College, Chapel.   

The Library is normally closed to the public but this virtual tour will give you a sense of its appearance and different rooms.
Take a virtual tour of the College grounds and explore King's from the Front Gate to the River Cam and Fellows' Garden.
Use the 'Navigate the Chapel' button in the top left of the tour to choose a different viewing point in the Chapel.

Making a competitive application - useful resources

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!

Find out more about choosing your subject and see the full list of the courses available to study at King's, from Anglo-Saxon to Theology.
We encourage all prospective applicants to pursue their interests beyond the standard school curriculum.
