Subject Masterclasses 2014
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?
The Masterclasses aim to provide students with an opportunity to explore topics of interest beyond what is covered within the A Level syllabus and to offer the chance to experience typical first-year undergraduate teaching at Cambridge.
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.
