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 the partners/spouses and children of those who are new to Cambridge.

Each Tuesday morning in term time we usually meet in the University Centre in Granta Place from 9.45am for English conversation. Our meeting room opens at 10.30am for coffee and bookings for events, and the presentation/lecture starts at 11.30am.  Meetings for the Easter Term finish on Tuesday 11 June, restarting on Tuesday 8 October.  During the Summer NVS will still meet informally on Tuesday mornings from 11am in the Granta Lounge at The University Centre to welcome both new and current members.

To give you an idea of NVS activities the Easter Term programme is available via the link below, the exciting Michaelmas Term programme will be available shortly.
