Arrival, Departure and Registration

Arrivals and Departures

For PKP 2020, arrival day is Saturday 4 July and departure day Sunday 16 August 2019.


Before the start of the programme, we'll email you with clear instructions on where to go on arrival in Cambridge. After first checking into your room, you'll be able to register with us until around 8pm. 

There'll also be a welcome buffet from 6:30pm on arrival day where you can meet and mingle with other PKP students. 

We'll also send you detailed arrival information, timetable, student handbook and library guide before registration day. 

Early arrivals

Unfortunately we're unable to accommodate arrivals before arrival day. If you'd like to arrive in the UK beforehand, you could stay in a hotel in either London or Cambridge. 

Late arrivals 

If you think you'll arrive later than 8pm on arrival day, please email us on and let us know at least a week in advance. 

Early departures

The PKP Programme Director will need to pre-approve any requests for early departure and this is not always possible. If you will need to leave PKP early, let us know on

Late departures

Unfortunately we're unable to provide you with accommodation after departure day.
