Faculty of Music Taster Day

 

We are delighted to offer in-person Music Taster Days on 18 and 25 June 2022, 11am-4pm (registration from 10:30am). These free events are aimed at Year 12 students from non-fee-paying schools and colleges who want to find out more about studying music at University. 

Our Taster Days are designed to offer a taste of life as a Music student at the University of Cambridge. Participants will experience some of the teaching methods used by university academics and gain an insight into just some of the huge range of skills, approaches, and topics that the study of music at University encompasses.

The aim is not only to expand students' knowledge and understanding of various aspects of music and musicology, but also to encourage them to develop their critical thinking skills, all in a friendly and supportive environment.

The event will finish with a talk and Q&A on Studying Music at Cambridge, with a panel of current staff and students.

Please note that these events are open only to students from state maintained schools and colleges. This is a widening participation initiative and priority will be given to applicants that fill one or more of the following criteria: schools with low participation in HE; students who would be first generation in family to attend university; students who qualify for free school meals; students with experience of care. 

A limited number of travel bursaries are available on request.
