Graduate students

New students are warmly invited to come to a relaxed and informal Freshers’ Event this summer to help you prepare for university and make some friends before you arrive. 

Hear from alumni and current students about living and studying at Cambridge. Bring your questions and leave with tips and advice from those who know what you are going through.

New events will be added to the schedule throughout the spring and summer months, so do check back regularly for updates.

If you are unable to attend a Freshers’ Event, or can’t find an event near you, feel free to contact any of the 430+ Alumni Groups worldwide for information and advice, both before you arrive and throughout your studies.
