Early Arrivals’ Timetable

Later in August, you will find here a list of events scheduled by your JCR and the University prior to Freshers’ Arrival Day designed to help international students (and other early arrivals) settle into life at Corpus, the University of Cambridge and in the UK. Come to as many or as few of the events as you like but most of all, have fun! You’re only a fresher once! Activities will be updated online if there are any changes.
