Cambridge University Russian Society (CURS) was originally founded in the early 1920's, perhaps earlier. It was known as the Slavonic Society.

Our society is run and organised by an elected committee of students with an interest in Russia, its people, literature and culture. We welcome non-Russian speakers, as most of our events are bilingual. We engage our members by meeting weekly for a conversational evening, organise talks with incredible speakers, plan many eventful evenings and annual parties.

2016 was a year of tremendous change and a real renaissance for CURS. We were pleased to announce our redesigned membership cards, the release of our new website and Facebook page as well as numerous other exciting additions to the society like an official visitors book. CURS is now among the most dynamic societies in Cambridge. See you all at our events!
