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 cam.ac.uk/coronavirus or contact your College or Faculty/Department for such information.

Can't find an event near you?

If you're unable to attend a Freshers’ Event, or can’t find one near you, why not contact any of the 420+ Alumni Groups worldwide to ask about their experiences of Cambridge.

Testimonials from last year's attendees

“Informative and reassuring. Particularly useful for freshers who feel anxious about starting University.” – Attendee, North West England event

“It allowed me to ask questions that could not have been answered by general guides for international students.” – Attendee, Poland event

“It has put me in touch with other Welsh students and made me feel a bit less nervous about the workload.” – Attendee, South Wales event

"The speakers were very friendly and informative; the small size of the event allowed us to ask questions without feeling too self-conscious.” – Attendee, Devon event

“It was great meeting new people from the Oxbridge network.” – Attendee, Ontario event
