What is The Subject Matters?

The A Level (or equivalent) subject choices that students make in Year 11 can have a major impact on their course and university options. Selective universities often consider not only the individual subjects, but also the combination of subjects. At the University of Cambridge, many of our courses require applicants to have taken certain subjects, or combinations of subjects, because they prepare students more effectively for those courses.

Aimed at Year 10 and Year 11 students and their parents or supporters, The Subject Matters events offer sessions in which experienced Admissions Tutors give key advice about making informed A Level (or equivalent) subject choices to support students to put themselves in the best position for their studies after sixth form.

Students will also be able to participate in an academic taster session in either the Arts and Humanities or the Sciences, as well as the opportunity to ask current undergraduates questions, giving them a valuable insight into university life and study.

The Subject Matters events usually take place on Saturdays and are open to both students and their parents or supporters. The sessions are an excellent opportunity for parents or supporters to find out more about how their student can start exploring subjects beyond their school curriculum, and how they can support them with that.

Funded places Funded places are available for students who are currently in care or eligible for Free School Meals. A travel fund is also available for individual students who meet either of these criteria and will be attending with a parent or supporter.
