As you have no doubt already realised, there is a never-ending supply of lectures, seminars, workshops and training sessions available to you at Cambridge.  You are able to participate in pretty much everything that the University offers, which can be a blessing and a hindrance at the same time.  Here we have tried to select the most appropriate opportunities for you.  Please keep us posted with details of anything  you come across which proves to be useful so that we can add this to the calendar and open the opportunities up to other students.
