Undergraduate Study

 

What are they?

Subject Masterclasses are subject-specific events that offer academically able students in Year 12 (or equivalent) the chance to experience typical undergraduate teaching at the University of Cambridge, and to get a flavour of what it's like to be a student here.

The Masterclasses cover a range of subjects and provide students with an opportunity to explore topics of interest beyond what's covered within the school curriculum.

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

When are they?

Subject Masterclasses take place throughout the year. Booking is now open for the spring series of Subject Masterclasses. Please see below for the full list of Subject Masterclasses available, dates and information on how to book. New subjects and dates may be added below. If you would like to be notified if additional Subject Masterclasses become available, please register your interest using the form in the sidebar.

How do I book?

Booking is open for the next series of Subject Masterclasses which will run between February and April 2019.
