Open Days, Events and Visits
Trinity Hall welcomes prospective applicants to visit both the University and the College. Visiting Trinity Hall is one of the best ways to get a feel for the place and learn about life studying and socialising here. We run several Trinity Hall Open Days and Subject Taster Days throughout the year, and take part in the University’s wider Open Days each July; these are primarily aimed at sixth-form students and mature prospective applicants who are considering applying to Cambridge and would like to know more about the University, the Colleges, courses available, student life and the admissions process.
Hosted by Trinity Hall, Science in Archaeology Day will give prospective undergraduate students an opportunity to see how archaeologists and biological anthropologists use science to uncover the human past. Featuring presentations and hands-on activities on major methods and themes such as:
- geoarchaeology and the development of landscapes
- human evolution and ancient DNA
- zooarchaeological investigations
- archaeobotany and the origins and spread of agriculture
- the isotopic analyses of human and animal material, to study palaeodiet and palaeoclimate
- chemical analyses of archaeological materials
- human morphology
Current Year 12 students, mature students, parents/carers and teachers are welcome to attend.
In some cases travel bursaries may be available. Please contact the Department of Archaeology outreach coordinator, Laure Bonner, at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
The event is free to attend, but booking is required. Please book via the Department of Archaeology website.
Spend a day with us finding out about studying a subject at the University of Cambridge, and life as a student at Trinity Hall. These open days run from 11am-4pm and include talks on a variety of undergraduate courses, the opportunity to meet academics who teach Trinity Hall undergraduates, and tours of Trinity Hall Central Site.
There is an open day for Arts & Humanities subjects on 9 April, and one for Sciences subjects on 10 April. The events are free of charge, and for sixth-form or older potential applicants (please note that we cannot include parents/guardians).
To book a place, please go to our Open Day Booking Form.
Trinity Hall will take part in the Faculty of Mathematics Open Day on Saturday 27 April 2019. Spend the first half of the day with us, attending a talk from a Trinity Hall Mathematics academic and getting to know the College on a tour.
In the afternoon, you can attend short lectures by the Faculty of Mathematics intended to give you an idea of what it is like to study mathematics at a high level. You can get an idea of what to expect from the programme for last year here.
For more details, and to book a place, visit the Faculty of Mathematics website.
The University of Cambridge and its Colleges will be opening their doors for the Cambridge Open Days on Thursday 4 July and Friday 5 July 2019.
These events are for prospective applicants in Year 12 (or the equivalent) and prospective mature applicants (aged 21 or over) only, together with up to two parents or supporters.
On the day you’ll be able to find out what the University and Colleges have to offer through presentations about our courses, the application process, student life, and finance. You’ll also have the opportunity to talk to current undergraduates and staff from the Colleges and academic departments.
Bookings will open in April 2019. For further information, see the Cambridge Open Days website.
Please note that attendance at an Open Day or Subject Taster Event is not a prerequisite for applying, and those who apply without having attended one of these events are not at a disadvantage with regard to admissions.
Visiting Trinity Hall
If you are considering applying to Trinity Hall but are unable to attend one of our events (or there aren’t any open for bookings), you are very welcome to look around Trinity Hall on an alternative date. If you would like to look around on a self-guided tour, please visit Trinity Hall’s Central Site Porters Lodge and introduce yourself as a potential applicant – the Porters will let you know whether it is possible at that time for you to look around Central Site.
Alternatively, please contact email@example.com to enquire about being shown around by Trinity Hall’s Schools Liaison Officer.
Trinity Hall runs many different events for prospective applicants. You can find out more about our other Schools Liaison and Outreach work on the Access and Outreach webpage of this website.
We are keen to meet as many prospective applicants as we can through our Open Days and Subject Taster Events, which unfortunately means that we are unable to include parents and guardians in the main programme or offer them lunch. However, our events occasionally include parent/guardian-specific sessions, and parents and guardians are welcome to explore the College grounds at their leisure.
Visitors with Disabilities
Please let us know in advance if there is anything we can do to make your visit easier.
