"I wish I'd found InterNations sooner: It would have made my first few month as an expat in London much less overwhelming."

Therese Yeboah

"For me, the InterNations events are the best part. I attend almost every get-together and always get to know lots of friendly fellow expats."

What Can You Expect from Expat Life in Cambridge?

Cambridge offers the best of England in one city. Districts such as Newnham maintain a village-like atmosphere, while the city's thriving university scene ensures a lively nightlife. Brimming with ancient academia, the cobbled streets and grand architecture of Cambridge are a history lover's paradise. Picturesque meadows surround the city, ensuring the quintessential English countryside experience is but a cycle ride away; all this within commuting distance of London, with its seemingly endless business opportunities and economic potential. Whatever your reason for moving to Cambridge, we are confident the city will offer you the experience of a lifetime.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities across the globe.
