Masterclasses Autumn 2019

Challenge what you know

 

Masterclasses bigger

Our popular Masterclasses programme is back for autumn 2019 to provide school pupils in Years 8-13 with fun, engaging and interactive insights into what it's like to study at a selective university. 

Our expert academics lead sessions in a whole range of subjects and topics, from physics to filmmaking to philosophy! Your pupils will take part in activities, workshops and lectures which will advance their understanding of a particular topic, invigorate their interest in the subject area and motivate them to pursue further study in the field.

The Masterclasses will usually last about two hours and will run every Wednesday afternoon 1.00pm - 3.00pm from Wednesday 6th November to Wednesday 11th December inclusive. 

Search for the Masterclasses by subject area below and follow the link to make your booking request. Please note, individual bookings can only be made by students in Years 12 and 13, all other year groups must be accompanied by their school.

Everyone is welcome at the Masterclass. The majority of places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis from Monday 16th September, until class capacity is reached.

We look forward to welcoming you and your students to our Masterclasses!
