Undergraduate Study

 

Subject Masterclasses

Join us for an in-depth look at a range of our courses. Our Subject Masterclasses run throughout the year, we will update this page with future sessions at regular intervals throughout the year. Both UK and international students are welcome to attend.

What are they?

Subject Masterclasses are subject-specific events that offer students in Year 12 (S5 for Scotland, Year 13 for NI, or equivalent) the chance to experience typical undergraduate teaching at the University of Cambridge, and to learn more about a topic of interest. The events are designed for students looking to apply in October 2024, including mature students.

Each Masterclass includes:

  • two taster sessions delivered by 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

How do I book?

The events are open to individuals at a cost of £12.50 for online and £20 for in-person.

Booking is essential and must be made in advance of the Masterclass through our online store (links in the table below). Bookings will close approximately one week prior to each Masterclass this is to allow sufficient time for attendees to complete preparatory work, so do ensure you book in advance if you wish to attend. You can book to attend as many Subject Masterclasses as you like.

Funded places are available for eligible students and must be booked by the deadline shown in the table below. Please find our eligibility criteria and application form, on our Funded Place webpage.
