Virtual open days

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, St Catharine's College and the wider University will run 'virtual' open days in an attempt to deliver some of the elements of our usual in-person open days.

Cambridge University Virtual Open Days: 2nd-3rd July 2020

The University and its Colleges have been working to provide online replacement provision for the Open Days. You can book free places on the University's Virtual Open Days here. There will be plenty of information about St Catharine's (Catz) available, as well as talks and resources from across all Colleges and Departments. 

As part of the University Open Days, Catz would like to invite you to join Q&A sessions with our students and Admissions Tutors to ask us your questions, big or small. If these sessions become oversubscribed, please consider signing up for one our subject-specific Q&A sessions in the next section.

Video guides from St Catharine's staff and students

As part of our online provision for prospective students, one of our College's Admissions Tutors has recorded a series of talks, giving guidance on applying to the University of Cambridge and discussing the benefits of coming to St Catharine's. These videos answer many of the questions which prospective students ask us in person at the Open Days. You can find the videos here.
