Return visit from Spanish students

From Sunday 28 April - Saturday 4 May 2019  the exchange students from Madrid come to Cambridge where they will stay in colleges. We ask that, if possible, you make sure that your exchange student is settled in their college (usually the college you are at) room on arrival. Apart from this there is no commitment on your part, although you will be invited to a formal dinner with the teacher and exchange students at sometime during the week. You can organise other social events if you wish but there is no request from the LU to do so.
