Bridge events at Hughes Hall

“The Bridge is an exciting new initiative to foster discovery and make a difference.” Professor Patrick Maxwell, The Regius Professor of Physic

We run a range of Bridge events and opportunities. Many of these support our Impact Leadership Programme which is designed to equip our academic community for life beyond the College gates and to help maximise their impact and employability, and enhance their CV, whilst studying at Hughes.

We do this by providing training and development opportunities to the most relevant candidates who apply to our programme and by offering a range of events and experiences to the whole Hughes Hall community. We also provide advice on career development, research translation, and partnership brokering, and act as an initial point of contact for those navigating the Cambridge translation ecosystem or looking to connect externally, including policy, practice and industry collaboration.

Our lectures, events, seminars and other opportunities include:

  • Masterclasses
  • Seminars
  • Bridge lecture series
  • Fireside chats
  • Mentoring
  • Work shadowing
  • Work experience placements
  • Internships
