Cambridge University Alternative Prospectus, 1st Year Mathematics Timetable and Cambridge Supervisions

This is a very good website for anyone who wants to know about Cambridge, its colleges and courses - Cambridge University Alternative Prospectus

Everything on the website has been written by current and recently graduated students at the University of Cambridge, to give you honest information about what it’s like to be a student at Cambridge.
Cambridge's Courses
Cambridge's Colleges

Supervision is one of the greatest strengths and a key advantage of studying at Cambridge - most students find their supervisions the most rewarding and beneficial part of their course. It is organised by the college. Supervisions provide regular small-group tuition (usually one or two students) with subject specialists who may be one of the country's or world's leading authorities.

Lim Jeck's supervisors for this term (4 Oct to 2 Dec 2016) are:
~ Numbers and Sets - Prof Imre Leader, who is also Lim Jeck's Director of Studies (DoS). Read about the roles of DoS and Supervisors here
~ Groups - Prof Imre Leader
~ Vectors and Matrics - Dr Crowe
~ Differential Equations - Dr Peng

Lim Jeck is paired with Alexander Gunning from Australia for supervisions; both of them are 3-time IMO Gold medalists
Lim Jeck and Alexander Gunning
Statistics on 2016 Mathematics Course Admission cycle:
Total Cambridge first year Mathematics undergrad students in 29 colleges: 258
Total Trinity College first year Mathematics undergrad students: 48

More Pics from Cambridge

Centre of Mathematical Sciences - about 20 min walk from Trinity College. Cambridge library is here too.
Most items at Wilko (above) are very reasonably priced; I bought a single duvet for only £6. Another place to get cheap items is Poundland, where most items are sold at £1. Both Wilko and Poundland are located in Grafton Centre
For clothings and shoes, you can get from Primark. Lim Jeck's suit (see first pic above, jacket and trousers) was bought from Primark at £28. His gown was purchased directly from Trinity College at £34.50
Bicycles are a common sight in Cambridge. Many students ride them to lecture venues

Off to Heidelberg, Germany

Lim Min is participating in the 4th Heidelberg Laurette Forum (HLF) held in Heidelberg, Germany, from 18 to 23 September 2016. Hotel acommodation and forum costs are sponsored by the HLF organiser, whereas her air tickets are paid for by NTU SPMS.

About the HLF

The Heidelberg Laureate Forum is a one-week event combining scientific, social and outreach activities. The winners of the most prestigious awards in Mathematics and Computer Science, the Abel Prize, the Fields Medal (including the Nevanlinna Prize for contributions in “Mathematical Aspects of Information Science”), and the ACM Turing Award are invited to participate in the Forum.

Each year the Scientific Committee of the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation decides on a topical focus for the upcoming forum. This is done in close communication with the laureates.

Once the focus has been defined, applications from young scientists for participation in the forum are solicited. The first phase of the application process is primarily handled by the award granting organizations, supported by the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, Mathematisches Forschungszentrum Oberwolfach and by Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz Center for Informatics. The candidates proposed by these organizations will be reviewed by the Foundation’s Scientific Board, which will make the final decision.
