Freshers' Events

Around the world in August and September, University Alumni Groups host Freshers’ Events for new undergraduate and postgraduate students starting a course at Cambridge this autumn. These optional events are a great opportunity to speak to current and former students about their experiences of Cambridge and meet other new starters. Events are in-person or online, as stated. 

These events are not intended to provide information about what the academic year will look like in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Please visit or contact your College or Faculty/Department for such information.
