Virtual Open Days

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Churchill’s Open Days have been moved online to this page, where we expect them to remain until 2021.

Cambridge University's final Open Days of 2020 are on September 17 and 18.  Whilst we're sorry that we can't currently welcome you in person to Churchill as part of these events, we have two new videos - My Churchill and A Tour - which we hope will give you a great flavour of what our community and environment are like:


To find out more about Churchill, you can explore our Undergraduate Admissions webpage, check out our Virtual Churchill YouTube playlist, and view our entry in the University's Virtual Tour:

Churchill College played a full part in the July 2020 Cambridge University Virtual Open Days, and you can view back our content – which includes Q&As with Admissions Tutors and current undergraduates – at:

July 2020 Open Days

Don't be fooled by the fact that this page is hosted at isaacphysics.org. Isaac is a Cambridge platform that was particularly suitable for these events but this page's content is for students interested in all subjects, not just Physics! From it, in addition to recorded Q&As, you’ll find resources including:

Finally, bookings are now open for the September 2020 Cambridge University Virtual Open Days at:

 September 2020 Open Days

If you want to hear from Churchill Admissions Tutors particularly, please attend either of the 09:30 Applying to Cambridge live Q&As, available after you book in through the above link. For information, these University Open Day events are being promoted as most suitable for sixth form (Years 12 and 13) students or equivalent, as well as for prospective mature candidates, with the content provided being focused especially for applicants in October 2020. More information can be found in the University's Virtual Open Day FAQs:

Virtual Open Day FAQs

Coming to visit us at one of our undergraduate Open Days is the best way to discover what Churchill is really like.

As well as looking around the College campus, you'll find out more about how Cambridge University works, the courses on offer, and our entry requirements. You'll meet some of the College's teaching academics as well as current students to talk to them about their experiences of studying here.

Unfortunately, due to restrictions arising from COVID-19, we can't invite you to come and look round in person at the moment. However, we have arranged Virtual Open Days - content above - which are the next best thing! We hope these will answer any questions you may have, or that we'll be able to help you at our next event. And please remember, you're always welcome to be in touch with our Admissions Office.

Booking a place

When bookings open for our next in-person events, likely in 2021, they will be made available from links at the bottom of this page. Please keep checking back for more details.


Some overnight accommodation may be available in College if you are unable to travel on the Open Day itself - please see the relevant date link at the bottom of this page. When available, accommodation is for one night only; the night before the Open Day you're going to attend. If you need to stay overnight, it is advisable to check availability and book early. When accommodation is available, you can book it as part of our regular booking process by using the date links at the bottom of this page. Such accommodation is at a subsidised bed and breakfast rate for Open Day attendees, of £17 per night per person for students and teachers, and £40 per night per person for parents.

Overnight accommodation is at an absolute premium around our Open Days so we expect anyone who books our subsidised accommodation to attend our full Open Day programme at Churchill.

Forthcoming Open Days

Churchill usually runs general and subject-specific Open Days. You can view our Virtual Open Days at the top of this page, with information to follow here about our next in-person events - in 2021 - as soon as we can share it.
