Open Days 

Every year we invite potential students of all ages and backgrounds to join us at MMLL on our Open Days. These events are free to attend and are 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. Find out when our next Open Days are scheduled and how to book your place.

Oxford & Cambridge Student Conferences

Each March the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics takes part in the Oxford & Cambridge Student Conferences that take place around the country. These Conferences are free to attend and are aimed at Year 12 students (or equivalent) in the UK who are studying for their A Levels/IB (or equivalent) and who are beginning to consider their options for study beyond sixth form.

In 2021 and 2022, these events took place online. You can find out more about the 2022 Virtual Conferences via the above link.

Details about the 2023 Student Conferences will be available soon.

Please note that advance booking is essential for these events and there is a cost to attend. Funded places are available for eligible students.
