Department of Computer Science and Technology

There will be Hybrid Open Days in July 2022 where would-be undergraduates can find out what it’s like to study Computer Science here by visiting either in-person or virtually. The Open Days will take place on Thursday 7 July and Friday 8 July 2022.

Offering an admissions talk, tours, a sample lecture, and the chance to ask questions about studying here, the Hybrid Computer Science Open Days are aimed at prospective applicants in Year 12 (or equivalent) and prospective mature applicants (aged 21 or over), together with any parents or supporters.

They take place as part of the wider University Open Days that additionally offer opportunities to visit the colleges and find out about student life and finance. 

In July 2022, the Open Days will be hybrid. You can come on a visit to the Department either virtually or in-person and find out about the Computer Science course (or Tripos, as it’s called here) and about the application process.

Running up to the Open Days, the University will also be running general information sessions - Warm-Up Webinars - online. These will include topics such as student finance, student life, studying at Cambridge as a mature student and studying here as an international student.

Visitors will be able to hear the Computer Science admissions talk. This is normally given in a lecture theatre here, but this year it will be pre-recorded instead and made available to view both online and here in the Department. The talk will explain the admissions process, the structure of the Computer Science Tripos, the projects students undertake at different stages of the Tripos, and the skills they learn along the way. Visitors can also hear a sample lecture online, to get a flavour of the learning here.

Those wishing to attend the Hybrid Open Days should register in advance 

For those unable to attend an open day, please see our Admissions Information. The current admissions brochure is available. You may also be interested in the example pathways which show how students with different specialisms or interests could progress through the course.
