Subject Taster Days

Every year Christ's College hosts a series of Subject Taster Days, themed around the life and legacies of famous figures and alumni from the College's past.  This year, the following Taster Days are planned:

The aims of these days are to give potential applicants a taste of what it is like to study these subjects at Cambridge.  The programme varies in each case, but usually includes a series of lectures and workshops, a library session, a tour of the college, an admissions workshop and a buffet lunch.
