Return visit from Spanish students

The exchange students from Barcelona come to Cambridge where they will stay in colleges from Sunday 28th to Sunday 5th May 2024. We ask that, if possible, you make sure that your exchange student is settled in their college (usually the college you are at) room on arrival.  Apart from this there is no commitment on your part, although you will be invited to a formal dinner with the teacher and exchange students at sometime during the week. You can organise other social events if you wish but there is no request from CLIC to do so.
