Open Days and visits

We take part in the University’s Open Days and are open to visitors throughout the year. Open Days provide prospective applicants with an opportunity to chat to current students and gain an insight into life at Fitzwilliam College

In light of the latest advice about the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the in-person Cambridge Postgraduate Open Day has been cancelled. The University and colleges are working on producing a virtual alternative which will be available in November. More information will be available on this page in September.

Our Postgraduate Open Day 2020 would have been as follows, we hope to recreate as much as possible for you in the virtual world!
