Newcomers and Visiting Scholars

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak we are running most of our groups and activities online and some in person where possible, please check back regularly for updates.  


Whether you are already in Cambridge, planning to come soon, or recently left the city, NVS is here to share experiences and support you as you build up a network, meet other NVS members, ask for help or offer advice.  Each week you are invited to our virtual Tuesday Morning Chat over Coffee and Talk for 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 wish you a warm welcome to Cambridge. 


Our official programme for Michaelmas Term will run from Tues 6 Oct – Fri 4 Dec 2020.  Informal Coffee Mornings will run outside term time in Zoom.  


To join NVS please register with us on this website.  Join our Facebook group for regular updates and news.  Please email if you have any questions.
