Subject Taster Evenings
Each summer term we run a programme of virtual Subject Taster Evenings for year 12 (or equivalent) students at a UK state (non-fee-charging) school or college. They feature the chance to meet our Directors of Studies, hear from our students, and experience a taste of Cambridge-style teaching.
We have tried as far as possible to place subjects on the same day only where they are unrelated; we encourage prospective applicants interested in multiple subjects to sign up for multiple evenings, to help inform their eventual subject choice.

Please note: each subject listed in a cell has its own Taster Evening - i.e. on Monday 25th April there will be two separate Taster Evenings, one for Biological Natural Sciences, and one for Asian and Middle Eastern Studies. Unfortunately it is not possible to attend two Taster Evenings on the same day.
Each Subject Taster Evening will run from 5 to 7pm, and will involve:
- A talk from a Director of Studies/Fellow 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.
If you would like to attend one or more of the evenings, sign up using this form. The deadline for signing up is 1st April.
