Welcome to 2021-22 Veterinary Students!

Please note that due to the current circumstances, details are still being finalised for these sessions and further information will be confirmed via email in due course.

Covid-19 update: Due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and government guidance,  we have had to make some changes to the programme in order to mitigate against risks to health and to give you the best possible academic experience in the circumstances. We will continue to monitor and respond to the changing public health situation. The changes are:

  • Many lectures may be delivered online
  • Most practicals are planned to be delivered in person but with reduced numbers
  • Most supervisions are planned to be in person


You will find below information regarding your first week at Cambridge.

You will receive, by email, a welcome letter detailing you set, and how to access the online timetables. Please check your @cam email account.

The documents below make up the Freshers Pack, which you must read carefully and print off as necessary.
