Undergraduate Study

 

What are they?

Subject Masterclasses are subject-specific events that offer students a flavour of undergraduate study and an introduction to the University of Cambridge.

Our Masterclasses are aimed at academically able students in Year 12 (or equivalent). The Masterclasses provide students with an opportunity to explore topics of interest beyond what's covered within the school curriculum and offer the chance to experience typical undergraduate teaching at Cambridge.

A range of subjects is offered each year, which in the past has included Chemistry, Engineering, Genetics, Geography, History, Languages, Mathematics, Music and Psychology.

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. The next events will run in February 2018. New subjects and dates will be listed below when booking becomes available – register your interest using the form in the sidebar to be notified when future bookings open.
