Welcome to the Cambridge University Hungarian Society!
The Cambridge University Hungarian Society (CUHS) was originally founded in 1957 with the aim of promoting Hungarian cultural heritage. Currently, it exists as a social scene and support network for Hungarians affiliated to the University. A further role of CUHS is to advertise higher education in the UK among prospective students in Hungary, supporting applications to Cambridge.
Our events include speaker events, social gatherings, and formal dinners with other national Societies. We have screened Hungarian films and cooked Hungarian food, enabling the visibility of our culture in Cambridge.
CUHS has a distinguished history, having been founded by Hungarian students arriving to study at Cambridge following the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. Although the Society fell dormant in the ensuing decades, it was reestablished in 1994 by students arriving after the fall of the Iron Curtain. With Hungary’s accession to the European Union in 2004, studying at the University became an option to more and more students. To promote this option, the Society was refounded in December 2011, as a commitment to mutual support among Hungarian students. Since, we have made connections with Hungarian student societies across the UK, joined the Hungarian Youth Association. Our alumni have cofounded the Cambridge-Oxford Alumni Club of Hungary.
