Undergraduate Study

 

What are they?

Subject Masterclasses are subject-specific events that offer students 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.

Aimed at academically able students in Year 12 (or equivalent), 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

How do I book?

Booking is essential and is open to individuals at a cost of £20 (to cover event costs). Funded places are available for some students (details given on the booking page). Links to booking forms for each event are given in the table below.

Please note: we're unable to accept bookings from parents or teachers. Bookings are non-transferable. Refund requests can only be accepted up to seven days prior to the event start date. Whilst staff and current students are available throughout the event, we're not responsible for participants beyond our legal responsibilities as event organisers.
