On Monday 19 September, the Master and two Petreans took part in a Symposium in Zurich in association with Churchill College. The event, commemorating the famous speech made by Sir Winston Churchill in 1946 which called for "a kind of United States of Europe", took place in the same hall in Zurich University exactly 70 years to the day since he delivered it.
Perfect for anyone about to apply to university for an undergraduate course and considering Cambridge, this event hopes to give you a glimpse of life at Peterhouse, as well as the opportunity to ask questions of Admissions staff, teaching staff and students of the College.
Note that attendees can find more a timetable and a booking form here.

Peterhouse, Cambridge has partnered with Windridge & Young to create and supply an official Peterhouse tie.
Windridge & Young are delighted to be involved with this project. They re-mastered the college tie’s original weave, and for the first time ever have brought together the vibrancy of Peterhouse’s age-old royal blue and white in the finest dyed silks, to create a tie that is worthy of Cambridge’s oldest college.
Fellows and Members of the College will be delighted to hear of recent academic promotions announced in this week's University Reporter:
A Professorship for Dr Stephan Hofmann in the Department of Engineering and Readerships for Dr James Carleton Paget in the Faculty of Divinity and Dr Colin Watts in the Department of Clinical Neurosciences.
