A useful thing you can do before your course begins is to explore some of the principal websites and sources of information about the University of Cambridge, and about graduate study in Cambridge. In the midst of starting a new course and perhaps moving to a new city it's easy to miss some of the main places you can go for information, or to find out about support, training and other help available to you at the University.
There's a lot of aspects to being a graduate student in Cambridge. First and foremost, there is studying. But there's also a very rich social life, provided by my college, but also students' clubs and societies, and the town of Cambridge itself.
