Subject Taster Evenings
Each summer term, we run a programme of virtual Subject Taster Evenings for year 12, S5, or equivalent students at UK state (non-fee-charging) schools and colleges. They feature the chance to meet our Directors of Studies, hear from our students, and experience a taste of Cambridge-style teaching.
We encourage prospective applicants to sign up for as many subjects as they like! Attending more than one subject evening can help inform your eventual subject choice. If you're unfamiliar with any of the subjects listed below or would like to learn more about them, you can read their subject profile.
|Wednesday 19th April||Architecture||Medicine and Veterinary Medicine|
|Thursday 20th April||Geography||Philosophy|
|Monday 24th April||History of Art||Natural Sciences (Biological)|
|Tuesday 25th April||Land Economy|

|Wednesday 10th May||Human, Social & Political Sciences|
Each subject listed in a cell has its own Taster Evening - i.e. on Thursday 20th April, for example, there will be two separate Taster Evenings, one for Geography and one for Philosophy. Unfortunately, it is not possible to attend more than one Taster Evening on the same day, so we have tried to avoid clashes in similar subjects.
If you are interested in a joint honours course like History & Politics or History & Modern Languages, we suggest you sign up for Taster Evenings for both subjects.
Each Subject Taster Evening will run from 5:00 to 6:30 pm, and will involve:
- A talk from a Director of Studies/academic in the subject about the course at Cambridge and Caius, and the chance to ask questions;
- A taster lecture or interactive session from a Cambridge academic;
- A question-and-answer session with current students in the subject.
More information about signing up is available through your school or on the Undergraduate Study website (just search for "Gonville & Caius").
