What is studying a subject at university level really like? Credit: Laurence Livermore

The University is running a large set of Subject Masterclasses this October and November for academically able Year 12 pupils (or equivalent).  Masterclasses are a great opportunity for students to undertake super-curricular activities and explore subjects beyond the school curriculum. Students are able to attend multiple masterclasses throughout the year, so they can also be a useful tool for students still deciding which subject they wish to study at university. Bookings can be made here, and funded places are available for FSM pupils and children in care.

Each Masterclass includes:

  •   two taster lectures delivered by leading academic staff from the University
  •   the opportunity to discuss and ask questions
  •   an introduction to the Cambridge admissions process
  •   the opportunity to hear about life as a Cambridge student from current undergraduates

This autumn we are offering Masterclasses for the following subjects:

  • Anglo-Saxon, Norse, and Celtic
    (Tip: Maybe not obvious, but explore this course if you're interested in History, Literature, Languages)
  • Physics
  • Politics and International Relations (HSPS)
  • Linguistics
  • English
  • Physiology and Neuroscience
  • History
  • Music
  • Medicine
  • Chemistry
  • Sociology (HSPS)
  • Veterinary Medicine

For details and booking, please see the Cambridge admissions website.
