This looks really interesting - is there any chance of spaces opening up for Scholars not from the 2020 cohort?

Hi Emma, yes, scholars from cohorts before 2020 can now register for the masterclass!

Hi Nikol - does this include both Y1 and Y2 scholars?

Hi Sebastian, this event is only for Y1 scholars starting the programme in 2021. A recording of the session will be available after the event.

Hi, any chance there would be a recording of this available? I was unable to attend due to circumstances out of my control but it was something I really wanted to see!

Thanks!
