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. New subjects and dates will be listed below when booking becomes available. Please register your interest using the form in the sidebar, to be notified when future bookings open.

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 anyone eligible for Free School Meals and for children in care. If you're eligible and would like to apply for a funded place, please submit your details on the funded place section of our website. Links to booking forms for each event are given in the table below. You can book to attend as many Subject Masterclasses as you would like.

Two of the sessions in the Medicine Masterclass will be repeats from previous Masterclasses.

**Please note that some Subject Masterclasses may repeat sessions from Masterclasses held earlier in the year. We will confirm session titles within one month of the event. If sessions are repeated and you have attended a Masterclass in this subject earlier this year, we will contact you to suggest alternatives on the day. **

Full joining instructions and travel information will be sent out to delegates approximately two weeks before each Masterclass. Please check your inbox and spam/junk mail folders regularly around this time. If you haven't received the joining instructions by two days prior to the event, please email the Masterclass Team.
