Every year we invite potential students of all ages and backgrounds to join us at MMLL on our Open Days. They’re the perfect opportunities to learn more about what it's like to study languages, to get a taste of Cambridge life and to ask questions. 

We will hold our Faculty Open Day in March 2025, but will also be taking part in the annual Cambridge University Open Days. The next events will take place on Thursday 4 and Friday 5 July 2024. Bookings will open in May 2024.

Details and the programme can be found on the Cambridge Admissions Office website nearer the time.

These events are designed for students considering an application to Cambridge in September/October 2024 and include admissions talks, departmental tours, sample subject lectures and opportunities to talk to current staff and students.

In the meantime, please take a look at our resources and information below.
