China (Zhejiang) Freshers' Event

China (Zhejiang) Freshers' Event

Open to: 
Graduate students

Coronavirus: the Alumni Engagement team is currently working with admissions teams to review our approach to Freshers' Events in response to the coronavirus. Further information will be available here in due course.

New students are invited to come to a relaxed and informal pre-arrival Freshers’ Event this summer, to help you prepare for university and make new friends before you arrive. Hear from current and former students about living and studying at Cambridge. Bring your questions and leave with information and advice from those who know what you are going through.
