Founded in 1904, the Cambridge University Expeditions Society is the oldest expeditions society in the world. In the footsteps of such alumni as Sir Peter Scott, Sir Vivian Fuchs and Sir David Attenborough, we exist to encourage and support students, staff and alumni to join, lead and organise expeditions around the world.
As well as providing practical advice on expedition planning, we continue to foster the spirit of exploration and adventure more generally. We organise weekly talks by accomplished explorers, encourage networking between past and future explorers, and arrange more relaxed social events for society members.
Each year, several expeditions gain university approval and head off to remote places in the world. Their aims have been incredibly diverse - from studying butterflies in the Ecuadorian Amazon to completing first ascents in the Tian Shan mountains of Kyrgyzstan.
Join us, and embark on your global journey.
