Medicine Taster Day

Book now

St Catharine's College is hosting a taster day for Year 12 (or equivalent) students interested in studying Medicine at the University of Cambridge.

This is a full day of events which includes talks and mock supervisions with Fellows of the College, the chance to meet current students, lunch in our College dining hall, a tour of St Catharine's, and a demonstration of a Medicine interview. There will also be an informal Q+A with an Admissions Tutor and our College's Directors of Studies for Medicine.

Due to demand, we are asking teachers to nominate students they think would benefit most from the taster days. Please nominate up to four students using the form on our website, and rank them according to academic ability. You are welcome to include a short statement in support of each student. We will endeavour to take at least one student from each school, though this may not be possible if the events prove popular. Please nominate through our website.

The deadline for nominations is Friday 3rd May. The teacher of nominees invited to attend a taster day will hear from us by the middle of May.

Nominees should be studying Chemistry and at least two out of Physics, Biology/Human Biology or Maths at A-level. Though it will be early in their studies, teachers should consider it likely that the students can meet the University's entry requirement of A*A*A in these subjects. Students should also have strong GCSE grades. IB applicants should be studying Chemistry and two other science/maths subjects, with at least two at Higher Level.
