Virtual Open Days 2020

Welcome to the Queens' College part of the Virtual Open Day. Here you will find a number of videos on various aspects of Queens'. We will also be on Twitter during Thursday 2 and Friday 3 July to answer any questions that you have. You can register for an Engineering subject session. We will also be hosting an Admissions and College Life session via Zoom on Thursday 2 and Friday 3 July. The Thursday session will take place between 15:45-16:45 and the Friday session will take place between 10:15-11:30.

To begin with you might want to view our admissions advice video which gives advice on how we use the information you submit in an application and what we look for during an interview.

A Director of Studies (DoS) is responsible for students academic work and progress in a particular subject, as well as their general welfare. Some of our DoS have made recordings explaining what they are looking from applicants, what support is available and what studying at Queens' is like. The videos can be found here.

One of our 2nd year students, Charles, shows you the main areas and facilities of Queens' in a college tour.


Our students have created some Q&A videos ranging from how to decide what course and college to choose, to what a typical week at Queens' would be like. The videos can be found here.

Students and teachers often ask us what kind of super-curricular activities are best for a particular subject. Together with colleagues from across the university, we have compiled a list of suggested reading and other activities that may help you start to explore your subject. These are suggestions only, and are certainly not “required reading” for Cambridge applicants. You can view the list here.

The following video provides an introduction to super-curricular activities:

We have also produced a Super-curricular Log, which is designed to help students plan and record their super-curricular activities, and to provide tips on university applications and personal statement writing. As well as being available at our events, you can download it as a PDF here.

If you are interested in attending any of the live sessions which we are running on Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd July, then you can find them on the University's Virtual Open Day platform. If you haven't registered for this, then you can do so here.
