Open Days

This September, we will be partaking in a range of Open Days, from Virtual Q&As in the College, to University of Cambridge Virtual Open Days, to subject-specific Open Days (see below).

These will provide prospective applicants, parents, and teachers with an opportunity to gain an insight into life at Fitzwilliam College. See below for further information. If you have any questions relating to any of our Open Days, please do not hesitate to contact us on

Fitzwilliam College is delighted to joint-host the University of Cambridge Veterinary School Open Day on Friday 10th September, along with the Veterinary School.

The programme will run from 9:00am to 5:00pm, and attendees will receive a tour of Fitzwilliam College and the Veterinary School, a talk on the admissions process and veterinary course (pre-clinical and clinical), a taster lecture and practical, and a Q&A. Students will also receive complimentary refreshments from Fitzwilliam College coffee shop and a lunch voucher for a meal at our college hall.

The day will be especially useful for potential applicants who have not yet finalised their choice of vet school or who simply want to know more.
