The Secret Subjects Taster Day – Saturday 19 February
Corpus, in collaboration with Trinity Hall and Sidney Sussex, are holding an online taster day expressly for those subjects which students from UK state schools tend to know nothing about, and as a consequence don’t apply for them when thinking about their degree choices. The day will consist of subject taster sessions with Cambridge academics, Q&As with current undergrads who are studying one of the Secret Subjects, and a chance to hear from graduates about the careers that the Secret Subjects can lead to. It will be aimed at Y12 students (or Y13/S5 in Northern Ireland/Scotland) but Y11s students are welcome to attend as well.
There will be sessions on:
Anglo-Saxon Norse and Celtic (recommended for any student studying A-level History/English Literature/Classical Civilisation/any modern language)
Archaeology (recommended for any student studying A-level History/Classical Civilisation)
Asian and Middle Eastern Studies (recommended for any student interested in languages and the Far Eastern and Middle Eastern cultures)
Classics (recommended for any student studying A-level History/English Literature/Classical Civilisation/Politics/Philosophy/any modern language)
History of Art (recommended for any student studying A-level Art/History/English Literature)
Linguistics (recommended for any student studying A-level English Language/English Literature/Philosophy/Maths/any modern language
Music (recommended for any student studying A-level Music or has Grade 8 Theory)
Theology, Religion, and Philosophy of Religion (recommended for any student studying A-level Religious Studies/Philosophy/History)
Students will be able to sign-up for two subject sessions each. If there are more than two that they are interested in, we aim to make the recordings of the sessions available online after the event. Teachers are allowed to attend as well!
