International students at Cambridge University
With thousands of internationals at Cambridge University, it's a great place to enjoy meeting people from all over the world!
At the start of every year, the International Student Welcome is run over several weeks in September and October by CGS in partnership with CICCU, CCCF, local churches and Friends International. We enjoy meeting students at the various welcome events: Afternoon Cream Teas, Walks to Granchester, Really Useful Tours and many others. The ISW dinners at the end of the welcome period are a highlight.
During Covid, a smaller programme has been in place and a new Buddy Scheme has been very popular. Due to high demand all sign ups for events and buddies are now closed. However, we'll be posting more events for internationals on the Cambridge ISW Facebook page which you can find here:
