Undergraduate Study


We will be offering a new programme of Virtual Subject Masterclasses this summer. A range of subjects will be available to explore from May to August 2021. Both UK and International students are welcome to attend. 

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 Virtual Masterclass includes:

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

When are they?
