NIH Cambridge Buddy System – The NIH-Cambridge buddy system is in place to help new scholars become accustomed to Cambridge. First years are paired together with older scholars before arriving in Cambridge so they can get to know each other and get acquainted with how Cambridge works.
Tasks like opening a bank account, figuring out how to find out about events, and navigating the city may seem daunting at first but become easy with the support of the NIH-Cambridge Scholars community. Each mentor treats their mentees to dinner in Michaelmas term with generous support from the OxCam program, so they can form relationships that will last throughout the program and beyond! Contact – Keval Patel email@example.com ; David Bulger firstname.lastname@example.org ; Terry Wu email@example.com
And also review the matriculation guide to get an OxCammer perspective.
