Department of Computer Science and Technology

Computer Science students at the University of Cambridge

We held two Virtual Open Days last week, on Thursday 2 and Friday 3 July, where would-be undergraduates could find out what it’s like to study Computer Science here.

Offering an admissions talk, a sample lecture and the chance to ask questions about studying here, the Computer Science Open Days were aimed at prospective applicants in Year 12 (or equivalent) and prospective mature applicants (aged 21 or over). However, if you were unable to take part  in these Open Days, which took place as part of the wider University Open Days, there are still opportunities to find out what it's like to study here.

College information sessions

This week, some of the colleges are offering additional online Q&A sessions for any interested prospective students.
On Wednesday 8 July, 1.00-1.45pm, there is an online STEM admissions clinic at (women's college) Newnham College.
And on Friday 10 July at 12 noon, there is a Q&A session for prospective Computer Science students at St Catharine's College where you can meet the Admissions Tutor, Director of Studies, interviewers, and current Computer Science students online.

Department admissions brochure and information

You can find lots of useful information in our undergraduate admissions brochure and the Undergraduate Admissions pages on this website. They include Admissions FAQs.
Plus, there is also a page of questions that interested students asked during the Open Days last week. You can see the questions and answers on the Open Days 2020 FAQs page.

You may also be interested in the example pathways that show how students with different specialisms or interests could progress through the course.
