Hi guys, I’m Alice! I am a third year physical Natural Science student at Magdalene from Leicestershire. In IA, I took Chemistry, Physics, Earth Science and Math A and now I am studying third year Earth Science. Every weekend, you will find me on the Netball court, be it ladies or mixed netball or trying another one of the sports teams that Magdalene has to offer. I am happy to talk to anyone interested in Magdalene, Natural Sciences or any general queries.
Hi everyone, I’m Sarah! I’m a second-year studying MML (French and Spanish) and I’m from Liverpool. In my spare time at Cambridge I am involved in the Welfare committee and the Women’s Sub-Committee and I also attend many dance classes run by CUTAZZ Dance Society. If you have any questions at all about MML or extra-curricular activities, don’t hesitate to email me.
Hi everybody, I’m Chloe! I’m a third-year studying English at Magdalene and I’m from Manchester. I am particularly interested in literature from the Victorian period onwards to the current day. When I am not reading in the English Faculty or in a cosy coffee shop somewhere, I can usually be found watching some top quality student productions at the ADC Theatre or outdoors somewhere in Cambridgeshire walking with the Rambling Society.
I am also Magdalene’s JCR Access Officer for 2016, which means that I meet with lots of prospective students throughout the year and help to co-ordinate school visits to Magdalene and College Open Days. I also run Cambridge University Students’ Union (CUSU) access campaigns within Magdalene. For this reason, I am very happy to answer any questions about studying either at Magdalene or at Cambridge in general, as well as any course or society specific questions!
Hi everyone, my name is Pippa and I'm a third year geographer, originally from Canterbury. I specialise in human geography looking at societies, culture and politics and I honestly love every minute! I like to keep busy and I am women's welfare officer in college as well as holding committee roles for the Cambridge University Dance Society and the Cambridge for Consent Campaign, all of which have been rewarding and I would whole heartedly recommend. If you fancy a chat or have any questions, feel free to contact me with any questions.
Hey! I’m Andrew and a third year studying energy, sustainability and environmental engineering with the hope of becoming a sustainable energy researcher. I’m originally from Sandwich which is a small town on the east coast of Kent. Outside of work I like to play different sports including cycling, hockey, cricket and rowing for the Magdalene Boat Club. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
Hi! I'm Rebecca. I am a law student at Magdalene but currently on my year abroad in France. I am German but I went to a European school in the UK. At Cambridge, I am a member of the university and college law societies which organise great speaker, social and careers events throughout the year. I am also part of the Access Committee in Magdalene which means I help out at Residentials, Open Days and school visits.
Now I am in France for a year. The faculty of law (and some other faculties) offer this great opportunity to their students even though. We don't study a language as part of our degree. I applied in my second year and could choose between Spain, Germany, France and the Netherlands. I can only recommend it!
Hiya I’m Hatty, a third year student studying medicine here at Magdalene. I come from a little town in Hampshire that no one has ever heard of, called Alton – and no, it’s not Alton Towers! Third year medicine is very different from the others, as you can choose your modules – I’ve chosen to do Physiology, Development and Neuroscience. The first half of my course has been fun, but I’m really looking forward to seeing the more practical side next year. When I’m not doing medicine stuff I’m usually make myself a cup of tea, or... well, drinking it! Feel free to contact me with any questions.
Hi, I’m Ellie and I’m a second-year English student, from a small village in Bedfordshire. I love the course and how much choice we get – I tend to focus more on poetry.
In my spare time, I do interviews for Varsity (the student newspaper) and write for a couple of smaller magazines. I’m Access Officer for the Cambridge Union, which holds some incredible debates and speaker events. I also really like the comedy and theatre scene in Cambridge so I often go and watch my friends’ plays. I didn’t have any experience of theatre before I came here but that really wasn’t an issue – there are lots of ways to get involved. I do a bit of producing, for the ADC, and for student films made by the Cambridge Film Association too. A highlight of last year, for me, was being in a sketch show, which we then took to the Fringe. Feel free to send me questions about getting involved with any of these kind of things.
Hi, I’m James. I'm a 3rd year HSPS student specialising in politics and international relations and I come from Somerset. Although I specialize in politics, I originally applied with a view to studying archaeology and took a range of subjects in my first year, so feel free to ask me any questions about the whole HSPS course, as well as Cambridge and Magdalene more generally.
