A Variety of Evening Activities to Make Friends Fast

It's very daunting meeting lots of new people for the first time, so we carefully plan a wide variety of activities to ensure that you quickly make friends.

Silent Disco

A leisurely way to ride down the River Cam and see the beautiful backs of some of the Cambridge colleges

Homework / Film Night


We'll set aside some time to do homework, while for those who have already done any can watch a film.

Graduation Ball


Dress up and celebrate the end of classes at our black tie Graduation Ceremony, followed by the Ball.

Optional Sunday Workshops

Photography Workshop

We will be learning the basics of advanced photography - considering the effects of the manual modes to change the aperture, shutter speed and ISO and how they affect the light captured by the camera. We will consider basic lighting and have a go at some portrait and landscape photography, with the aim of improving the photos that you take. If you have a camera that will let you change the aperture, shutter speed and ISO that would be helpful to bring but not necessary - we have a DSLR & mirrorless camera and various lenses for you to try out.
