Welcome! Karibuni!

We hope your time studying on the MPhil in African Studies will prove to be both enjoyable and worthwhile. 

Once you arrive in Cambridge, you will be officially allocated a dissertation supervisor and should arrange to meet them as soon as you can. Your supervisor will give you specific advice on your MPhil work and how to get started. To help you further with the settling-in process, there will be an induction day on the first day of Michaelmas term for all MPhil in African Studies students. This event gives you the opportunity to meet your fellow students, as well as the administrative and teaching staff involved with the MPhil course. Details of the induction day will be emailed to you shortly before the academic year begins.

Once again, a very warm welcome to Cambridge.
