Free Taster Day in Latin and Classics

The aim of this ‘taster day’ is to give prospective applicants for a Classics Degree at the University of Cambridge the opportunity to experience teaching in a University environment and to decide whether learning Latin is something that they would enjoy. The day includes small-group Latin lessons and lectures on a Classical Theme. 2018’s Taster Day took place on Saturday 21 April 2018, but keep an eye out for 2019’s date.

The day is open to anyone who has never studied Latin, in year 11 and aboveThe day is FREE and a limited number of hardship bursaries are available to help with travel costs.

We currently place no limit on numbers. If a limit has to be imposed, we shall accept students in the order in which they book.
