MML School Visit

COGS Visit

On 16 October 2013, Silke Mentchen and Cordula Böcking, as Schools Liaison Officer, hosted a visit to the MML Faculty from a large group of pupils from The Fernwood School, Nottinghamshire and their German exchange partners. They were helped by students of the Department of German, among them the Tiarks Junior Scholars. Very positive feedback was received afterwards from Fernwood teacher Matthew Robson: "Thank you so much for organising everything, it was a really fantastic opportunity for the students to see what life at Cambridge is like (and the staff too!) Thank you for your kindness and hospitality." Other groups who would like to visit the Department/Faculty at times outside official Open Days should contact
