Come to our Free Latin Taster Day to get a full day’s introduction to the Latin language and an insight into studying Classics at Cambridge.
Free Taster Day in Latin and Classics
This Latin taster day gives students the opportunity to experience learning something new in a University environment. The day includes small-group Latin lessons, a lecture on a Classical theme and a chance to talk with some of our current Classics students who came to Cambridge to learn Latin from scratch.
The day is open to anyone who is not studying Latin formally at school, in year 11 and above. The 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.
Venue: Faculty of Classics, Sidgwick Avenue, Cambridge, CB3 9DA. Light refreshments will be provided. For lunch, students are asked to bring a packed lunch.
