The Big Cambridge Survey

The Big Cambridge Survey is your chance to have a say on student life at Cambridge. We are conducting a comprehensive survey of student life at Cambridge to find out your priorities and what you want to see changed in the university. We’ve already had plenty of responses, and the more we get, the better evidence we have on what’s going on across the university to make positive change for students!

Go to – and one lucky respondent will be awarded £200!


Cambridge University Nanotechnology Society (CUNanoSoc) is recruiting!

Are you interested in the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology? Or are you a researcher working in one of these disciplines within the university? And would you be interested in helping to grow a highly interdisciplinary society which supports early-career researchers with similar interests? If so then read on!

CUNanoSoc, the proud successor to the Cambridge Carbon Nanotechnology Society, has three aims: to establish a forum for the discussion and promotion of nanoscience and technology; to help early-career researchers maintain an awareness of the latest developments in the field; and to foster collaboration and networking between these young researchers. We hope to achieve these aims through discussion groups, publications and our annual international symposium.

We are looking for undergraduates, master students, PhDs and post-docs from across the university to help us realise our ambitions for the exciting future of this society. If you think you might be able to contribute, whether it be by helping to secure sponsorship, organising eventspublishing our newsletter, or marketing the society, please do get in touch by filling out the following form before Monday 24th March:

Alternatively, if you would be just interested in hearing more about the society over the coming year, please sign up to our newsletter here:

English Teaching in Sudan

English Teaching In Sudan


Boyd English Centre in Khartoum, Sudan, is looking for young and enthusiastic English teachers. You don’t need teaching experience but it would help. Most important is an outgoing personality and an ability to work in alien cultural surroundings.


The Centre


BEC is a new start-up institute that offers private English tuition to school children, students, NGO workers and business people. We aim to become the best centre in Sudan for private tuition. The centre is located in central Khartoum.


All classes are one to one but we hope to expand to give classes in the future.




BEC is a business institution but we also encourage our staff to take on work at other institutions around the city for those less fortunate.




Sudan is one of the more troubled countries in a troubled region but the conflicts are restricted to the periphery. What you read in the press is mostly true but Sudan is a large country and the current problems do not affect Khartoum directly. You will find that the Sudanese people are unbelievably generous, hospitable, friendly and kind.  You will often find people going out of their way to help you in everyday life.


Sudan is a Muslim country and its official language is Arabic.




In contrast with the periphery, Khartoum is undoubtedly one of the safest cities in the world and there is almost none of the crime normally associated with cities in the developing world. The weather is extremely hot but not unbearably so and you will soon get used to it.


Not everything that you might want is available in Khartoum but most things are. Anything that has to be imported is expensive, even by Western standards, but other things are very cheap. Alcohol and pork are strictly illegal but we have good contacts so don’t think that just because you’re in the desert that it will never rain!




We offer accommodation, (either at the centre or an apartment nearby), work permits and a local salary equivalent to approximately $200 per month. We also hope to offer reimbursement for flights on the completion of a 12-month contract.



If you are interested or would like to find out more please send a brief c.v. and a letter of interest to


You will need to attend an informal interview in person or on skype.

Want a writing gig at the biggest festival of theatre and comedy in the world? Then come and review for!


This exciting opportunity is open to all students from Oxford, Cambridge, Durham and Bristol universities, and is a fantastic way to experience the Fringe, get your writing published and develop your skills as a reviewer. The deadline for applications is Monday 24th March!


You don’t have to have any experience of reviewing, but you must have excellent written skills and a love of theatre. If you are involved in any of our partner websites, Oxford Theatre Review, Cambridge Theatre Review, Durham Theatre Review or Bristol Theatre Review, then you will already know what we do. This is brilliant, but not essential.


If you are chosen, you will come and stay in a house with 7 other reviewers and two editors, for up to six days at the Fringe. Every day you will go and see two performances, usually lower budget or student-style productions, and you will be required to write a review of around 400 words for each show by 10am the following morning, which will then be edited and published on the Ed Fringe Review website before noon. You will not be required to pay for tickets for any of the shows you review.


This is a fantastic opportunity that allows you to experience the Fringe in a whole new way, and for a lot cheaper than you would otherwise. You get to see a massive range of amazing shows, and the house is a lovely, fun environment in which to work.


If you are at all interested in working for us or have any further questions, e-mail us and we will send you an application form and job description.
