Undergraduate Admissions

 

Virtual Open Days - Undergraduate Mathematical Tripos

On Saturday 16 May we held a live online Open Day. You can watch below the videos of the live sessions, includng STEP workshops, and the four pre-recorded mathematical talks released on the same day on our newly launched YouTube Channel

Live sessions with Q&A

Find out about the main features of our undergraduate mathematics course, what our requirements are, and how we assess applicants, plus Q&A session at the end, with the Faculty Admissions Officer and four current students: Jemma, Julius, Kai and Muhammad.
Claire Metcalfe, Cambridge Mathematics graduate and experienced STEP resources developer, explains what STEP exams are, and gives advice on how to prepare. This webinar is followed by a Q&A session with Claire and Alex, one of our Student Ambassadors.
Talk for parents and supporters. What it is like to study Mathematics at Cambridge? What distinguishes us from other Mathematics faculties? What careers prospects do our graduates have? Plus Q&A session.
Watch more videos about the course, and mathematical talks by our students and staff.
 
Find more useful information, for example about the Mathematics with Physics option, about careers, and much more.

STEP workshops

Gabriel, one of our Student Ambassadors, guides you through the solutions to Q2 STEP 1 (2013) and Q1 STEP I (2005), together with Claire and Parth.
Paul, one of our Student Ambassadors, guides you through the solutions to Q2 STEP 1 (2013) and Q5 STEP I (2004), together with Alex and Kai.
Wilfred, one of our Student Ambassadors, guides you through the solutions to Q2 STEP 1 (2013) and Q3 STEP I (2006), together with Andrea and Maël.
Try to solve the STEP questions explained in the workshops before you watch the videos!
 

Mathematical talks

Professor Andrew Thomason, from the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, explore some interesting properties of random sequences, and their uses.
Dr Natasha Morrison , from the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, talks about networks and graphs and some very topical applications.
Dr Hamza Fawzi, from the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, talks about the mathematics used to store, recognize and classify images.
Dr Maria Ubiali, from the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, talks about the symmetries behind the Standard Model of particle physics.
