Please note for your diary:


Saturday 12th October

The main induction day is 12th October and all new students are required to attend.

There will be a photographer taking a group photo of all new 2024 Postgraduate students.  Even if you are not interested in having the photo yourself, please do come along, as it is important for College records.  Please meet on the steps by the Porters’ Lodge at 2pm.

Free Trip to Chartwell House in Kent

Chartwell was the Churchill family home from 1922. The rooms remain much as they were when they lived there, with pictures, books and personal mementoes evoking the career and wide-ranging interests of a statesman, writer, painter and family man. The hillside gardens reflect Sir Winston’s love of the landscape and nature. They include the lakes he created, the kitchen garden and the Marycot, a playhouse designed for his youngest daughter Mary.

Sign up is required. We will meet on the Porters’ Lodge steps at 9:15am.



Matriculation is the formal process that admits you to the University and makes you eligible to be a student of the College.

Registering with the University will be completed online and information about how to do so will be sent to you via email to your @cam email address.

See the Statutes and Ordinances of the University.
