This study day on 29 June is aimed at those who have just finished AS-Levels and are beginning work on A2-Level Classical Civilization, Greek, or Latin. The day will consist of lectures, given by experts who teach and study at the University of Cambridge, which will introduce you to the A2 topics and the A2 set texts (and in particular their historical and cultural context) that you will be studying. There will also be an opportunity to take a guided tour of our famous collection of casts of ancient sculpture, to visit one of the Cambridge Colleges, to find out more about making a successful application to University, and - for those who have not yet studied one of the ancient languages - to participate in a taster session in Latin or Greek. See this year’s full programme, to get a taste of what is on offer, and click here to book your place.

If you're thinking of attending one of the Cambridge Open Days on the 30 June and 1 July and you're interested in Classics, the Classics Faculty will be running Is Cambridge Classics for You? a talk about studying Classics at Cambridge, a session for the parents of potential Classics students, a sample lecture which helps you find out what it’s like to study Classics here, and a stall where potential students can get personalised information and advice from Classics lecturers and students. To attend this event, please register here.
