International Students


International Student Guide

Our International Student Guide provides practical pre-arrival and orientation information to help students coming from outside the UK plan their move to Cambridge. It includes guidance on travelling to Cambridge, opening a bank account, living in the UK and the University's support services. It also has a useful glossary of Cambridge terminology and provides some practical advice from current international students to help you settle in.

Welcome to Cambridge Events

'Welcome to Cambridge' events take place around the world in August and September. Hosted by Cambridge alumni groups, these events are for new students before they arrive in the UK to help prepare for the start of studies at Cambridge. As well as receiving tips and advice from current students and alumni about what to expect during your time at Cambridge, the events provide an opportunity to meet other new students.
