Undergraduate Study


Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be running any Subject Matters in the academic year 2020/2021. Sign up to the Student Newsletter to be notified about other opportunities at the University that may be of interest.

What is The Subject Matters?

The post-16 subject choices students make in Year 11 can have a major impact on their course and university options. Selective universities such as the University of Cambridge often consider not only the individual subjects, but also the combination of subjects because they prepare students more effectively for those courses.

The Subject Matters is a series of Cambridge based events for Year 10 and Year 11 students and their parents and supporters. We offer key advice about making informed A Level (or equivalent) subject choices and provide an introduction to university life and study. PDF icon The Subject Matters sample programme.

When are they?

Most of our events take place on Saturdays but we also offer sessions during half term. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be running any in-person Subject Matters events in the academic year 2020/2021. Looking ahead to 2021, we will follow government guidance when making decisions about running The Subject Masters. The health and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and students remains our priority, and as such we will only run these events if we are confident that appropriate measures are in place.
