Newcomers and Visiting Scholars

NVS are currently running groups online and will run some in person events where possible in the new term in accordance with government guidelines. Please check our website and facebook page regularly for updates.


Whether you are already in Cambridge or planning to come soon, NVS is here to support you in building a network of friends and to offer advice about life in the city.  Each week in term time you are invited to our virtual Tuesday Morning Chat over Coffee and Talk, with a chance to meet fellow newcomers and get to know those who have been in Cambridge for a while.  After coffee we have a different talk each week, see Events for more details.  We are also running a number of online groups, details of which can be found on events list.  We wish you a warm welcome to Cambridge. 


Our official programme for Easter Term will run from Tuesday 27th April– Friday 18th June 2021.  Informal Coffee Mornings will run outside term time via Zoom.
