Applicant Information


Open Day Tour.jpg

With a heavy heart, the Department of Engineering has decided that in-person Open Days cannot go ahead safely in July 2021. 

Instead, we will offer video content, talks about the course and the application process via pages linked from this page - see the left screen menu.  We strongly advise people considering an application to Cambridge to watch these videos, we have tried to use them to answer the most asked questions. New content will be added as part of the 2021 Open Day event.

During Open Days, we will host a series of live webinars to allow prospective students to send questions to academics.  The webinars will cover all the Engineering disciplines we offer plus extra information about the application process and life at Cambridge.

The schedule for the webinars and links to the registration pages will be posted on this web page in the Easter term, which starts on April 27th 2021.
