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.

Societies supporting your career choices

  • 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

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

Set-up your own club or society

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.
