The Cambridge University Hungarian Society (CUHS), aiming to promote the understanding of and interest in Hungary, Hungarians, and Hungarian culture amongst all Members of the University of Cambridge.
The Cambridge University Hungarian Society (CUHS), aiming to promote the understanding of and interest in Hungary, Hungarians, and Hungarian culture amongst all Members of the University of Cambridge, was originally founded in 1957. The Society fell dormant, and was reestablished in 1994, after the fall of the Berlin Wall, coinciding with a growing number of Hungarian students at Cambridge. In its current form, the CUHS exists since December 2011, when it was refounded as student numbers once again rose due to Hungary's accession to the European Union in 2004.
The main objectives of the Society, apart from promoting an interest in Hungary, are to offer support and a social scene for Hungarian members of the University and other universities in the city of Cambridge, to encourage and support school leavers in Hungary who intend to apply to the Cambridge, and to represent and promote the interests of Hungarian students of the University and of all universities of the United Kingdom in both Hungary and the United Kingdom.
Our upcoming events serve as a great opportunity to share Hungarian culture, food and traditions with other members of the University; these involve speaker events and discussions, formal dinners and swaps, pub and film nights and much more!
