Other Opportunities

We’ve got an amazing opportunity for anyone who’d like to get involved with the upcoming Watersprite Film Festival in early March! Volunteering at Watersprite is not only a great, low-commitment way to meet like-minded people and forge industry connections, but also offers something special to add to a CV for anyone looking for a career in communications or the creative and/or media industries after graduation!

Education Resources 

Get to know the “Education Resources” tab on the Fitz MCR webpage!
This is a one-stop page which consolidates quick-access links to various academic databases and software that might be useful across different types of courses – not just those on which Cambridge already has institutional licenses for, but also others where one can request directly for a free educational/academic license!

Have any ideas or suggestions on what databases or software to include here? Simply drop an email to mcr.academic@fitz.cam.ac.uk – this page is non-exhaustive and will have rolling updates!

Fitz MCR Charity

This year the MCR are supporting a local charity – Jimmy’s Cambridge – who support the homeless community in Cambridge. Please consider making a donation through our Just Giving page. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/MCR-Treasurer
