Postgraduate students

Around the world in September, University Alumni Groups will be hosting online Freshers’ Events for new students starting a course at Cambridge this autumn. These optional events are a great opportunity to hear from current and former students about their experiences of Cambridge and meet other new starters before the start of term. All events will be free and online.

Please note that these events are not intended to provide information about what the forthcoming academic year will look like in response to the coronavirus pandemic. If you have any questions, please contact your College or Faculty/Department for such information. You can also visit
