First Fridays

Conversation and cake for postgraduate students at New College

First Fridays take place on the first Friday of the month, during semester time, alternating morning and afternoon slots, in the Senate Room. The conversations are then followed by coffee and cake in the foyer. You can come to just the conversation or just the cake or both!

These informal chats allow staff and students to share ideas about key aspects of academic life in a supportive environment.  All postgraduates are welcome to attend.

If you have a suggested topic for a First Friday conversation please contact Dr Hannah Holtschneider
