To find out more about applying to Cambridge and studying Classics at University come to one of the Cambridge University open days, this year on the 5th and 6th of July 2018. The days draw more than 8,000 students.
Alongside the University events, the Classics Faculty puts on a specific talk about studying Classics at Cambridge, a session for the parents of potential Classics students, a sample lecture which helps you find out what it’s like to study Classics here, and a stall where potential students can get personalised information and advice from Classics lecturers and students.
This year we will be holding our Introduction to the Ancient World at A-Level study day the day before (Wed 4 July) so please consider coming a day early and staying over in Cambridge. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide accommodation for applicants however some of the Colleges may be able to help with accommodation if you contact them.
Please remember that these are separate events. The Cambridge Open Days must be booked separately via the University’s Undergraduate Study website.
