Student life

Clubs and societies

Supporting your passions

The number of clubs and societies at the College is almost endless! You will find over 100 clubs, societies and teams to spark your imagination. You don’t have to be studying the subject to take part.

We had the pleasure of inviting a criminal judge into College who gave a deeply insightful and thought-provoking talk on sentencing

Societies supporting your career choices

The College has a variety of clubs and societies that you can join to help you with your progression planning.

MedSoc is an ideal society to join if you are considering a career in medicine, dentistry, nursing and other related health careers.

You can get involved in a range of activities including:

  • A speaker programme with talks from clinicians and academics
  • Student-led events and discussion groups
  • One-to-one support with applications, personal statements and university choices
  • Interview preparation including panel interviews and multiple mini-interview role play
  • Admissions test advice and BMAT essay practice with feedback
  • Advice and guidance on work experience and volunteering
  • Membership of The Medic Portal MedSoc to help with preparation for medical school applications
  • External links with Addenbrooke’s Hospital and Cambridge University including a lecture and dissection practical at the Physiology Department.

Speaker example

Prof Robert Rintoul, Professor of Thoracic Oncology, University of Cambridge and Consultant at Royal Papworth Hospital: ‘How are we going to cure more people from cancer?’

Societies are great ways to meet people: even if you don't know much, you can just go along!

We sing a variety of music in the College Choir, from Mozart to Toto, and have a lot of fun while doing it.

Societies supporting your interests

There are established groups from LGBT+ and Politics to Debating and Indian Dance, but if you think something is missing, then we encourage you to set up a group to support your interests, no matter how niche they may be. The vibrant diversity of our students means you are likely to meet someone with similar interests to help get your new activity off the ground.

There are subject-based groups, such as Sports, Music, Dance and Modern Languages, as well as interest groups such as Cheerleading, Robotics and Afro-Caribbean society.
