Welcome to Magdalene
The College is a warm and thriving community in which we strive to make everyone welcome. We are committed to excellence not only in academic life but in all aspects of what we do and we take great pride in the many achievements of the Members of our community.
Years of Study
Cambridge’s global reputation is recognised by the results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF), a major UK exercise to assess the quality of research at our universities.
The College is horrified by Stella Creasy’s account of the ordeal she suffered as a student in the late 1990s. We abhor any incidents of harassment and sexual misconduct of any sort and have established systems to deal with any matters of this nature. The College is committed to and supportive of the University’s Breaking the Silence campaign and works closely with our student representatives to that end.
The New Library has been announced as one of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) East Awards winners. RIBA has recognised outstanding architecture for over 180 years and their awards are regarded internationally as a mark of excellence.
Registration Closed - We are delighted to invite back those Members who matriculated in October 2015 and graduated with the B.A. degree prior to December 2019 to receive their M.A., either in person or in absence.
We are delighted to invite Members of the Buckingham Society to attend this year’s Buckingham Society Luncheon on Saturday 28 May from 12.30pm-4.00pm here at Magdalene.
We are delighted to invite alumni of the College and Choir to take part in a performance of Bach’s St John Passion, to take place on June 12th 2022, at St Giles’ Church. The College Choir will be joined by the Cambridge Baroque Camerata, whose members include some of the UK’s finest baroque instrumentalists. Many of the solos are sung by external professionals, and we are delighted that Charlie Mattar, our long-term singing teacher, will sing the part of Pilate, opposite former Master and Honorary Fellow Lord Rowan Williams as Christus.
