Wavelength: an app for discovering events

I’m Jonathan, one of the creators of a new mobile app called Wavelength, a really useful tool designed to help people discover and get involved in events going on nearby. With the app set to launch in Cambridge early in Lent term, I’d like to tell you a bit more about it. When studying at the university we found that whilst Cambridge has an abundance of things to do – and that’s fantastic – discovering things going on around you at short notice can be tricky.

Careers Service "Survival Pack"

This blog is a piece written by Hollie Berman, a third-year English student from Murray Edwards, showing students how they can make use of the Careers Service over the vacation and into Jan–Feb – with a glimpse of our Lent events and skills sessions. The blog is aimed at finalists but contains lots of useful resources for the wider student body, including the graduate community. As the Careers Service is an opt-in service, sharing this kind of comms is vital to ensuring each student is aware how much we can support them and ease the stresses of careers planning.
