Students on the M.Phil. course have access to excellent research facilities in their colleges and across the university.
The Cambridge University Library is one of the largest libraries in the world, with over 6 million volumes, many of which are on open access shelves. The Centre of Latin American Studies also has a library in the centre of Cambridge. Our specialist librarian, Julie Coimbra, is usually available to help with queries and students are welcome to make requests for new purchases.
Your college will provide free computing facilities, including internet and email, and the University Computing Service runs a number of free courses in skills relevant to research methods and presentation.
For those of you wishing to improve your Spanish or Portuguese (or any other language), the Language Centre provides free courses in major European languages, state-of-the-art audiovisual facilities for you to study over 140 different languages, a reference and film library and a wealth of information and advice.
The Mexican Society and the Hispanic Society feature among the many active clubs and societies which operate at a university level. They regularly arrange visiting speakers, film screenings and social events.
As a graduate student you will also have access to the University Careers Service, which offers a comprehensive and independent careers guidance and placement service to current and former students.
