The Freshers' Guide
The Cambridge University Language Programme (CULP) provides courses in French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian and Chinese (Mandarin) at basic, intermediate and advanced levels. Courses for students cost £150 (2013-14), and run for 15 weeks through the Michaelmas and Lent terms – make sure that you sign up asap as places are limited. To view information and enrol, please visit the Language Centre Online (which requires you to log-in via Raven).
There are also free courses, subsidised by a bequest by A.J. Pressland, for which all members of the university may apply, but priority is given to scientists.
