Secret Subjects Taster Day 

Saturday 18th February

Alongside Sidney Sussex and Corpus Christi Colleges, Trinity Hall will be running the second iteration of last year’s very successful Secret Subjects Taster Day. This virtual event seeks to showcase some of Cambridge’s more unique course options, so students can get a feel for what is out there and see whether they might be interested in applying for something they have never studied before.

This year’s event will offer taster classes, Q&As with a current student, and a talk from alumni of the subject. The subjects showcased will be: Anglo-Saxon, Norse, and Celtic; Asian & Middle Eastern Studies; Archaeology; Classics; History of Art; Music; Linguistics; and Theology.

Oxford and Cambridge Information Days for the South West (OCID)

March 2023

The OCID webinars are open to anyone associated with a school in the wider South West region (Bath and North East Somerset, Bournemouth, Bristol, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, North Somerset, Plymouth, Poole, Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Swindon, Torbay, and Wiltshire).

The webinars are a collaborative programme between the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. They are designed to provide Year 12 students and their supporters with an insight into the two institutions: the structure of the universities, what student life is like, the application process, and how to prepare a strong application.

Registration is now open.  We do not accept individual sign-ups for the student sessions; the forms should be submitted by a school staff member.

Staying up to date

If you take a look at our Access, Outreach and Widening Participation page, you will see how important supporting potential applicants is to us. In order to support (pre-)applicants, especially those without access to support and information related to their application, we run a programme of events each year for Years 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and applicants. These events range from Open Days and Subject Tasters to application support and skills-focussed workshops.
