Newcomers and Visiting Scholars

NVS welcome all those who are attached formally to the University of Cambridge, whether here alone or with family. We particularly like to welcome those newly arrived to Cambridge:

Each Tuesday morning in term time we usually meet in the University Centre in Granta Place from 9.45 am for English conversation, our meeting room opens at 10.30 am for coffee and bookings for fantastic events, and the welcome presentation starts at 11.30 am. 

Term has now finished, we'll continue to meet in the Granta Lounge at the University Centre, all are welcome!  Unlike our regular Tuesdays, there is no tea and coffee served - but most people pop up to the Cafe and collect whichever coffee or tea they want.

The Easter Term programme is now out of date, but it will give you some idea about how we operate.
