What happens at a Clare Open Day?

  • Introducing Cambridge: the University and the Colleges
  • Subject sessions with the Director of Studies
  • Interview discussions
  • Parents' Question and Answer Session with an Admissions Tutor
  • Tours of the beautiful College grounds, including the Gardens
  • There will be time to visit the Town Centre and other Cambridge Colleges close by.

 

Is accommodation available?

 

Some accommodation is available for our Open Days in July, and priority is given to those that cannot travel to Cambridge and back home in the same day. Accommodation should be booked using the on-line instructions and booking form.

 

Travel

 

Parking in Cambridge is very expensive (up to £25 per day). We suggest that you consider the Park-and-Ride service, which is excellent and will save you time, as well as parking charges. Detailed information about travel can be found on the Clare webpage Maps and Directions.

 

What if I can't make it to an Open Day?

 

Don't worry too much if you are unable to attend any of the pre-arranged Open Days. We know that this is not always possible.

You are very welcome to visit Clare at any time. If you tell the Custodians/Porters that you are a prospective student they will let you in without charging you the usual tourist fee and will point you in the direction of the Admissions Office should you want further information about Admissions. The Admissions Office is open from 9.00am - 5.00pm (except weekends). You are very welcome to look round the College, but we regret we are unable to arrange conducted tours and cannot promise to arrange meetings with Admissions Tutors.

It is very important to emphasise that candidates who have not visited the College are not in any way disadvantaged in the admissions process.
