Masterclasses give students the opportunity to explore academic subjects of interest beyond what's covered in the school curriculum.

Masterclasses will be delivered by a leading member of academic staff. Specifically designed for students studying A-levels and other level 3 qualifications, our masterclasses offer an insight into undergraduate study and encourage topical debate.

Attendees at 2020/1 masterclasses will receive a reduced offer of up to 16 UCAS points for future applications to related University of Cumbria courses.*

* The reduction will be applied on application and points cannot be redeemed retrospectively, if you have already applied to the University. They can only be redeemed against University of Cumbria courses linked to the masterclass.

Check out our masterclasses below. Please note: Booking is essential as places are limited!
