Congratulations applicants of 2014 and welcome to the best university in the world!  Check out this video of what you can expect, made by the TCS editors here.

Here at The Cambridge Student we’ve put together everything you might need for the next two weeks and tried to answer all of your questions. 

In our features section, Deputy Editor Freya Sanders has put together a list of the 11 Facebook pages you need to like if you want to put the 'pro' in procrastination in October.  Meanwhile, upcoming freshers Meggie Fairclough, Jacob OsborneAmelia Oakley and Olivia Thomas have all shared what they're expecting and looking forward to in our 'Into the Blue' series. 

In our opinion section, our columns editor Caitlin Saunders has taken a look at ‘The real reason why State School students don’t apply to Oxbridge’ while, in our features section, three writers have taken three very different approaches to Cambridge. 

As she enters her third year and looks back on a year out from university, Deputy Editor Morwenna Jones reflects on ‘What not to expect from Cambridge’, while Caitlin also tells you ‘How to Survive’ your first year. If you don’t manage to follow Caitlin’s advice however, Kiera Summer has you covered with what she learned from a failed first year

Our news team are also busy as ever, examining student access and this year’s results day and you even read interviews from successful applicants, university admissions officers and current students as the day goes on.

Whatever you want to read, something you can definitely expect is that, next term, The Cambridge Student will be also be printing its weekly newspaper where we’ll have even more useful articles as well as our usual selection of news, opinion, theatre, culture, lifestyle, interviews and features. 

And better still?  We want you to join!

As the biggest student newspaper with a weekly print edition at the university, we’re also always on the look out for new writers.  So, if you’d like to meet Katie Hopkins or Ed Miliband, have your own column or see some of Cambridge’s best dramatic performances for free, please email editor@tcs.cam.ac.uk.
