Our Welfare Forums are aimed at Welfare reps on the J/MCR or in societies, but any interested student is welcome to come along.

During this forum, we’ll be discussing and comparing the different ways in which each college approaches the intermission process (when you take a break from your studies for a period of time). We will be focusing on the kinds of welfare support your college provides or the support you would like to be provided for students on intermission. We'll be discussing some of the findings from our SU Intermission Report, which you can read here. 

There will be a member of the Cambridge SU Student Advice Service attending in order to speak about the services available to students on intermission. We will also be joined by Eva Seinsche, who works with the Mental Health Advice Service. 

The agenda can be seen here.

The structure of the event: this will be a relaxed discussion and you are free to leave at any time. There will be light refreshments for a variety of dietary requirements (vegan, gluten free) but get in contact if you have other dietary needs. The discussion will likely not last beyond an hour, and there will be an access break halfway through. 


If you have any questions please email daisy.thomas@cambridgesu.co.uk or contact Daisy SU on Facebook or Twitter.
