The University of Cambridge Admissions Office Subject Masterclasses are aimed at academically able Year 12 students from any school/college. They are subject-specific classes, which offer students a true flavour of undergraduate study and an introduction to the University of Cambridge.
What are they?

Each masterclass includes:
- A minimum of two taster lectures delivered by leading academic members of staff from the University.
- The opportunity to discuss and ask questions.
- An introduction to the Admissions Process, by a University Admissions Tutor.
- The opportunity to hear about life as a Cambridge student, from a current undergraduate.
