THANK YOU FROM THE MASTER We will reach the end of our 150th Anniversary Campaign next year, and I am confident enough to announce in print that, due to the amazing generosity of our wonderful alumni and loyal friends, we will meet our target of raising £20 million by 2019. That’s absolutely fantastic. However, you know what’s coming next! We’re now beginning a new stage of our journey, which is dominated by the huge task of refurbishing and transforming our 1960s buildings. The importance of our buildings lies in what we use them for, of course: teaching, research and student support are our vital, core, ambitions. But our building projects can’t wait. The work is essential not only because of the buildings’ age, but also in order to encourage the brightest and best students to apply here, regardless of their background. This is a core founding ethos of Fitzwilliam and one we’re committed to (I am writing this on my return from giving a lecture at The City Academy, Hackney. I was meant to be inspiring the Year 12 students, but the tables were turned and I have returned to College inspired by them.). Fitzwilliam’s Admissions Tutors report that the recent transformation of our freshers’ accommodation has been an important factor in the sharp rise in direct applications to Fitzwilliam, and our intake of state school students last year was well above the University’s target. In addition to transforming three staircases of student accommodation, we have also converted the old Library into the Upper Hall, and this summer we completed essential repairs and improvements to the Lantern roof. All of this work was made possible by alumni donations... Thank you. Our focus is now on the MCR extension. We have more than 350 graduate students and they desperately deserve better facilities in College, so I am thrilled that we will be able to begin this project in the summer of 2018. Then there are the next phases of the refurbishment of both student accommodation and the Central Building. It takes a lot of energy just to contemplate the size of our task, and of our “ask”. Of course, we are really proud, too, of the support we give to students once they’re here, financial, educational and pastoral. Hundreds of you have supported our students through the Student Opportunities and Bursary Funds, enabling them to flourish and to achieve great things academically and in their myriad extracurricular activities. This report highlights just a few particular achievements and examples.
Excellence in teaching and research is ultimately what the College is all about. In 2017, 114 Fitzwilliam undergraduates were awarded Firsts (of which seven were starred Firsts). Several students were at or near the top of the University class lists, and 15 were awarded University prizes. Our graduate students are also achieving brilliant results. We are thrilled to have recently launched the Lee Kuan Yew Fitzwilliam Scholarships, which will provide the lucky beneficiaries with life-changing opportunities. Last but not least, the 2017 telephone campaign was the most successful yet for the College, resulting in pledges and donations totalling over £240,000, and bringing the nine-year cumulative total to over £1.45 million. We thank you all for responding so wonderfully positively.

WHY DOES FITZWILLIAM NEED FINANCIAL SUPPORT? Development Director Dr Nicola Jones explains why alumni donations are essential.
The statistics speak for themselves: in 2016-2017, 8% of Fitzwilliam alumni made a gift to College. But that also means that 92% of those of you who may be reading this have not. So instead of focusing on the 8%, I want to talk to the majority. Until I started working in alumni relations, it never occurred to me to support either of the two colleges I had attended as a student. In fact, I had quite an impressive list of objections to doing so. The early objections were practical: I didn’t have any spare money, I had other interests, and I didn’t feel that a small donation would make any real difference. As I began to earn more, and charitable giving became more of a habit, my objection became more pointed: I simply didn’t think that giving to a Cambridge college would be the best use of my money. There were other charities which could have a far greater impact on the problems of the world. Needless to say, my perspective has changed. Today I’m lucky enough to see my donations working at close quarters, and this insight shows me that giving to Fitzwilliam is one of the most impactful things I do. By confronting some of the trickier questions head-on, I hope I can inspire you to join me.
LET’S START WITH THE BIG ONE: AREN’T THERE BETTER CHARITIES TO SUPPORT? ‘Better’ is a loaded word. Different charities play different roles in solving society’s problems. Some are established to meet acute, often time-sensitive needs (emergency relief after earthquakes, soup kitchens for the homeless) while others support research and longer-term development (cancer research, irrigation systems in drought-prone areas, carbon reduction). All charities require the skills and expertise of educated professionals: engineers to reconstruct bridges, scientists to develop new technologies, teachers to rebuild communities. Many of us give to support the acute moment of crisis, but we should also look more broadly at the investment required to support these acute efforts.
The briefest glance at the alumni database shows me that you are testimony to the impact of Fitzwilliam in the wider society. You are doctors, teachers, scientists, therapists, translators, journalists. Scores of you employ your expertise directly on the front line of charities, and even more of you use your knowledge to help others. Here in Cambridge, we are not only training the next generation of thinkers and doers, but also supporting our research students and academics to tackle some of the world’s biggest questions. All three of the long-term research areas mentioned in the previous paragraph have Fitzwilliam academics in their teams. So I would disagree. By giving to Fitzwilliam you nurture a generation of problemsolvers who will have an enormous impact upon society. And you address not just one problem, but many.

At the macro level, giving to higher education does require a holistic mindset. But when you give to Fitzwilliam, you also support individuals at the micro level. Investing in knowledge means investing in people, and for me a significant attraction in supporting the College lies in how my donations can change the lives of individual students. Our historic commitment to access is entirely compatible with a bigger commitment to effect change on society more widely: the very best minds can be found in underperforming and financially deprived areas, just as they can be seen in the world’s most privileged schools. By attracting, selecting and – most importantly – supporting the best minds, we help the individual to achieve their potential, and, as a place of learning, the College maximises
our impact on society. We seek to welcome and support students from all backgrounds not simply because it is morally right to do so, but because it benefits us all. Giving to Fitzwilliam is a clever choice: you can respond both to acute individual need – the gifted student whose circumstances have limited their potential – and contribute to the College’s ongoing work across the multitude of society’s needs.

WHY DOES FITZWILLIAM NEED FINANCIAL SUPPORT? BUT DOESN’T FITZWILLIAM CHARGE FEES TO SUPPORT THIS WORK? Fitzwilliam College is not a business, designed to generate profit, but a charity which operates to benefit its recipients. Although all students pay fees to study at Cambridge and most pay rent to live in College accommodation, this income is a long way short of covering the full cost of a Cambridge education. The supervision system is expensive and largely underwritten by the College. In addition to teaching, we support around 30% of our undergraduates through hardship bursaries, and have to maintain our buildings fit for a 21st century education. Fees and rents alone cannot meet this cost, and so we must raise funds. AREN’T CAMBRIDGE COLLEGES RICH? Some may be. Headline investment figures look impressive, but it is important to remember that as an endowed charity most of our capital cannot be spent. Much as home-owners cannot spend the value of the house they live in, and savers only benefit from the income on their nest egg, the College is not allowed to release these funds, and can only use the interest they return. In cash-flow terms, the College roughly breaks even each year, but this is only because we have a careful approach to what we can spend and limit ourselves to what we can afford. In good years we achieve more, but in leaner years we are limited. It is right to prioritise, but many really important projects are currently stalled due to lack of funds.
In 2016-2017, 511 donors gave £20 per month or less. This resulted in £79,414 worth of funding.
HOW DOES A SMALL GIFT MAKE A DIFFERENCE? THE DONATIONS MENTIONED HERE ARE FAR MORE THAN I CAN AFFORD. It is true that some of the challenges that Fitzwilliam faces require large sums of money: major building works, establishing teaching positions, funding the supervision system. And sometimes we are fortunate enough to receive donations which match the scale of a large project. But this is not the case most of the time: of the 8,000 gifts received by the College this year, only 23 were over £10,000. Most donors contribute smaller, regular sums, and it is collectively that these gifts make an enormous difference. LET’S PUT THIS IN CONTEXT: • One new donor making a monthly gift of £67 (plus Gift Aid) will cover the cost of a Fitzwilliam College Maintenance Bursary for one student for one year.
• Five new donors making a regular gift of £14 per month (plus Gift Aid) will cover the cost of a Fitzwilliam College Maintenance Bursary for one student for one year. • Ten new donors making a regular gift of £24 (plus Gift Aid) per month will cover the cost of a full Cambridge Bursary (£3,500) for one student for one year. I hope that this has helped to explain why Fitzwilliam asks for your help, and has also offered an insight into how a small gift can make a difference. If it hasn’t, please do get in touch and ask more questions. Because that is the final – and for some, most compelling – reason to support an institution like Fitz: you are part of our community, you are part of what we’re trying to achieve, and we have a duty not only to be transparent and accountable, but to engage with your questions and ideas.
PROGRESS OF THE CAMPAIGN The 150th Anniversary Campaign was launched in 2008 with the aim of raising £20 million for Fitzwilliam by 2019. £19 million has generously been donated to date, and thanks to alumni support we are on track to meet the £20 million target. Donations are benefiting the College's four areas of strategic priority: Capital Projects to improve our buildings; Access and Student Support to attract the best students regardless of their background and help them during their time here; Teaching and Research to ensure that we continue to offer the highest quality small group teaching; and the Fitzwilliam Experience to provide an enriching environment and experience for our students.

TEACHING & RESEARCH
The MCR extension and the next phase of accommodation refurbishment are set to begin this year.
Applications to Fitz have risen and a record number of offers to state school pupils were made last year. Over 1,000 financial awards were made by the College to students in 2016-17, and two new Lee Kuan Yew Scholarships have been created for graduate students.
Supervisions remain at the core of the learning experience at Fitzwilliam, and benefit Fellows as well as students, as Dr David Cole and Engineering student Charlotte Attwood explain.
Our students triumphed last year at the Edinburgh Fringe, on the water and on the cricket pitch, all thanks to the support of alumni.

MCR EXTENSION Thanks to your generosity, this summer will see the long-awaited extension to MCR facilities in The Grove.
Fitzwilliam’s graduate community has grown enormously over the last 50 years, with graduate students now almost equalling the number of undergraduates. They are hardworking, outward-looking and diverse in both their backgrounds and academic interests. The majority of students live in College-owned accommodation around the wider College site, and they are a vibrant and visible presence in our community. But their own communal facilities within the College are far too small to adequately accommodate the 350 graduate students who belong to Fitz. The current MCR (Middle Combination Room) is tucked into the side of The Grove, and although wonderfully central, it can only comfortably welcome 40 students at any one time. Inevitably, this limits interaction between graduate
students and curtails the huge benefits that interdisciplinary conversation brings. This summer, we will be breaking ground on a project that will transform the MCR. Thanks to the generosity of alumni, we have raised £440,000 towards the build, which is enough to start work in July. Architects RH Partnership (who designed A, B and C staircases) have created a sensitive design that will enlarge The Grove – removing the ugly old ‘boiler room’ and enlarging the communal space significantly. Upstairs, rooms will be available for teaching, group project work and independent study, vital as many of our 350 graduate students currently struggle to find shared spaces in which to work and teach. The MCR and the Fellowship have been closely involved with all stages of the design, and are excited by the potential the project has to bring the College research community together.
RACHAEL WEBB OFFERS HER SUPPORT Rachael Webb (née Brooks) studied Natural Sciences at Fitzwilliam from 1979-1982. When her recent presidency of the Fitzwilliam Society drew to a close, she knew that she wanted to make a significant donation to the College. As she heard more about the MCR community and worked closely with the MCR Presidents, she realised that this would be a chance to make a real difference: “The planned sympathetic alterations are a delightful and sustainable solution to the issues faced by the graduate community. The positive impact will resonate throughout the College, and I’m honoured to have been able to contribute.”
HOW YOU CAN HELP
We are still looking to raise the final £150,000 of this project, and would appreciate any contribution that you can afford. From regular £5 a month donations, to single six-figure sums, this project has already inspired donors from across the College community to give. This is an exciting opportunity to make a huge difference to half the College’s student population, and we hope you will consider making a contribution.

TRANSFORMING STUDENT ACCOMMODATION We have seen a significant increase in direct applications since the completion of A, B and C staircases, reports Donna Thomas, Deputy Development Director.
applications directly to Fitzwilliam increased by 12% compared to October 2015. In October 2017 we saw another leap on the previous year, increasing our direct undergraduate applications by a further 10.3%” the Admissions Tutors, Sara Owen and Holly Canuto, said.
The next phase of the refurbishment work will move to the Huntingdon Road façade and include an ambitious seven staircases: D - F and, significantly, G - J, which were the very first student rooms built and occupied on the College site back in 1963. When added to the recent upgrading of staircases A, B and C – which has already resulted in a rise in direct applications to the College – the completion of the work will mean that almost all of our first year undergraduates will be housed in some of the most modern, covetable rooms in the University. For recent alumni visitors to Fitzwilliam, staying on A, B and C staircases has been a revelatory experience when compared to their own undergraduate days. All the refurbished bedrooms are now semi-ensuite, with increased storage and improved layouts. The old shared bathrooms and gyp rooms have become new kitchens and social spaces, allowing students to cook, eat and relax together and helping to promote a stronger sense of College community. Planned originally to preserve the architectural heritage of the College and to enhance the student experience, the success of the first phase of renovation has also significantly boosted the College’s reputation amongst applicants. “In October 2016, the number of undergraduate 8
Student Rose McNelly (Natural Sciences 2017) lives on staircase C, which was upgraded in 2016. She said “My newly refurbished room is amazing! It’s modern yet practical and meets all of my needs. It’s the perfect study room and it also provides me with a comfortable and inviting place to relax. Not only this, but the kitchen area is a great social space which helped me to settle in and make friends. I am so glad that I was allocated a refurbished room as it was one of the reasons I applied to Fitz. I certainly haven’t been disappointed!” The refurbishment of staircases A, B and C was made possible thanks to the generous support of our alumni, whose contribution is now honoured through plaques on the staircases, which act as a permanent reminder to the students who pass them every day of the part these individuals played in the College’s development. If you would like to join them and become a key player in bringing about the next phase of our transformation, please get in touch!

HOW YOU CAN HELP
Planning permission has now been approved for D, E and F, and the work is scheduled to begin as soon as funds are raised. We would like to offer all alumni the opportunity to get involved in the accommodation refurbishment programme. Please get in touch if you would like to offer your support, or to tell us about your old College room and your experience of living in Fitzwilliam.

ATTRACTING THE BEST STUDENTS Higher education changes lives, and, since its inception, Fitzwilliam has led the way in encouraging and supporting students from all backgrounds.
When Fitzwilliam was created in 1869, it was founded upon principles of inclusion and fairness. From its earliest days, the institution attracted students from different backgrounds and cultures. Access to higher education is our core mission, and now, as it was then, there are challenges that we must overcome. Academically gifted students come from all walks of life, and we have to work hard to surmount the obstacles that prevent some students from applying to Fitzwilliam. The first obstacle is often cultural: “this isn’t somewhere for the likes of me”. It is in this respect that our outreach and widening participation work can make a difference. In line with the Office for Fair Access OFFA requirements, that work takes two distinct forms: firstly, encouraging pupils to consider applying to HE institutions across the UK; and secondly, encouraging the brightest pupils to consider Fitzwilliam. OUTREACH TO HIGHER EDUCATION For the purposes of outreach activities, Cambridge divides up the UK into regions: ours are Cumbria and the London boroughs of Hammersmith and Fulham. With the support of the Admissions team, our Schools Liaison Officer Connor Willmington-Holmes visits schools in our link areas and organises trips to visit Fitzwilliam. Backed up by a team of student volunteers and an increasingly important social media presence, Fitz is flying the flag for university.
In 2016/17 we received 527 applications - 480 direct, 47 indirect - 64% of which were from UK students. 72% of UK offers went to students from the maintained sector. This compares to the University OFFA target of 62-64%. ENCOURAGING APPLICATIONS TO FITZWILLIAM Open days, subject taster days and personal tours form the key elements of our admissions process. We’re increasingly making use of social media and our student volunteers do a fantastic job as ‘Delegoats’, looking after visiting pupils and nervous applicants during interview season. We all know that Fitz is a ‘friendly college’, and every new event is an opportunity to make pupils, teachers and parents welcome. 2016-17 marked the second admissions round with our new student accommodation in A, B and C staircases, and the impact that these improved facilities are having is undeniable. For many applicants (particularly those without knowledge of specific colleges), housing is often the deciding factor when choosing a college. By visibly investing in students and providing them with attractive, welcoming facilities, we are seeing an unprecedented number of direct applications. Alumni support has been crucial in both respects, and we are committed to continuing our timetable of events, at an annual cost of £120,000. Please don’t be put off by the large headline figure: most donors contribute small amounts and they make an enormous difference in what we are able to fund.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Firstly, spread the word, as alumni are our best ambassadors! If you are able to contribute financially, even smaller sums can make a difference. • £30 covers the cost of a student 'Delegoat' for a morning or afternoon event • £75 covers the cost of a student attending an Open Day • £200 covers the cost of a school visit in London
ACCESS & STUDENT SUPPORT
FROM STUDENT TO SCHOOLS LIAISON OFFICER Connor Willmington-Holmes is the College's new Schools Liaison Officer and was also a student here, studying Natural Sciences and graduating in 2017. Connor went to a state comprehensive, and wasn’t even sure about going to university until a Fitzwilliam open day led to a change of heart. The College’s commitment to equal access was a deciding factor (along with Nick Drake fandom!). "I grew up in the Midlands in a singleparent family and I studied at a state comprehensive. I wasn't really considering attending uni, but I came along to an open day at Fitzwilliam, primarily as a musical pilgrimage inspired by Nick Drake, the singersongwriter who was a student here in the 1960s! I realised that the College felt very much like home – it looked like my old school and people were really friendly. I also liked Fitzwilliam’s principle of equal access to university. As a result, I decided to apply, and the rest is history. Whilst I was a student here I specialised in Chemistry, and in my Masters year I looked at small-molecule drug design, which allows you to track the response of cancer to treatment. I also did outreach and school visits, so I'm pretty pleased that the College is now paying me to do this as my job!"
The 150th Anniversary Campaign
SUPPORTING STUDENTS The College made more than 1,100 financial awards to our students in 2016-2017. Acting Senior Tutor Dr Susan Larsen explains why this help is essential.
In the last 20 years, the cost of going to university in the UK has changed beyond recognition. For undergraduate students studying here prior to 1998, the main financial consideration was day-to-day living costs. The average undergraduate will now leave Cambridge with debts in excess of £50,000. Yet even students who borrow the maximum permissible under student finance rules still find it difficult to make ends meet. As the previous section underlined, Fitzwilliam’s founding ethos was to provide a Cambridge education to undergraduates who were unable to afford membership of a college. Almost 150 years later, the College remains committed to attracting and supporting students from communities that are under-represented in higher education. But as we achieve great things in our access work, with that success comes additional financial responsibility. Last year 101 of our undergraduates received a means-tested Cambridge Bursary, jointly funded by the Colleges and the University, in addition to the loans they take on to cover fees and maintenance. Of this number, 55 received the maximum award of £3,500, indicating that they come from households earning less than £25,000 per year. The College currently funds roughly one third of the cost of each Cambridge Bursary and by 2019/2020 we will have to fund 50% of the amount. 12
Alumni donations are hugely important, not only in supporting our responsibilities to the Cambridge Bursary scheme, but also in providing additional maintenance awards to students in extreme financial hardship and to those in the so-called ‘squeezed middle’: students who may receive only a small Cambridge Bursary, or none at all, but whose families still find it very difficult to cover all their costs. We are particularly grateful for regular gifts, no matter the amount, as these allow us to plan for the future. Alumni giving made it possible in 2017 for the College to raise the maximum College Maintenance Bursary for undergraduates and its maximum Hardship Award for graduate students from £750 to £1000, bringing our awards in line with those offered at most other Cambridge colleges. 2017 has been a great year for the College, with a record number of Firsts and an outstanding intake of undergraduates, 70% of whom are from state schools. With your support, we can continue to offer these students the kind of financial assistance that justifies our reputation as a College that encourages applications from all, regardless of background, and help the next generation of great minds go on to achieve great things.
Ella Palmer (English 2017), Cambridge Bursary recipient “The decision to apply to Cambridge was a daunting one and I originally feared it would exacerbate the financial problems I was sure I would have at university. However, finding out about the bursary system available at the College and how accommodating Fitzwilliam was for those from a lower income background convinced me to apply. I am endlessly thankful as if it wasn’t for the support available, I wouldn’t be so lucky as to be here studying a subject I love every day. Without the bursary I would have missed out on the best opportunity I’ve had so far, so once again thank you so very much for your support – it honestly has been life changing."

The 150th Anniversary Campaign
OUR GRADUATE STUDENT COMMUNITY Fitzwilliam’s ‘can do’ attitude to sourcing funding for graduate students is attracting outstanding scholars, and our reputation as a welcoming and vibrant college for postgraduate study at Cambridge is growing.
As you will have read in the section on the MCR extension, the graduate community here at Fitzwilliam is thriving. This is great news for the whole College – graduate students bring academic diversity and maturity to the student body, and make a vital contribution to the social, cultural and sporting activities of the wider College community. Our graduates come from across the globe, and they choose Fitzwilliam because we work hard to make them feel welcome. They bring academic diversity and experience to the College, and now more than ever this ‘Fitz welcome’ is crucial. As Brexit moves closer, many of our students fear restrictions and barriers to their work. It is too early to know what the consequences of withdrawal from the EU will be, but it is clear that Cambridge must continue to attract scholars from across the globe. The current political uncertainty is unsettling to both Home and Overseas students, and the role that Fitzwilliam can play in supporting their work and protecting their future opportunities shouldn’t be underestimated. A PLACE TO LEARN The new MCR extension will help the graduate students to feel central to the College, and supported in their academic and social activities. OPEN SCHOLARSHIPS The majority of graduates arrive at Fitzwilliam with funding, but increasingly we are developing our own funding packages to attract brilliant scholars to our community. We already have a number of established schemes such as the Robert Lethbridge Studentship in Modern Languages and the Charlton Awards, and we are pleased to now add two new scholarships to support graduate research: 14
the Lee Kuan Yew Fitzwilliam Scholarships. The scholarships – one at Masters level and the other for PhD students – are available to talented young academics working in fields with some connection to Singapore, and will help to promote intellectual exchange. They have been created thanks to donations to the Lee Kuan Yew Fitzwilliam Fund, which was established following Mr Lee’s death in 2015. Lee Kuan Yew studied Law at Fitzwilliam from 1947 to 1949, and was elected an Honorary Fellow of the College in 1969. The ‘Hong Leong - Lee Kuan Yew Masters Scholarship’ guarantees a full funding package for the successful student for a
one-year course. The ‘Kuok Family – Lee Kuan Yew PhD Scholarship’ provides a full funding package for the successful student for three years. Applications have recently closed, and we look forward to announcing the successful recipients in the spring. Over the past century more than 150 students from Singapore have come to Fitzwilliam. The Lee Kuan Yew Fitzwilliam Scholarships build on this historic connection by investing in the next generation of outstanding young scholars.
ACCESS & STUDENT SUPPORT
The graduate team at Fitzwilliam, and the students themselves, have a proactive attitude to sourcing funding, and we work hard to make every penny go as far as possible. Rather than wait for students to arrive with full scholarships, we work with them to leverage awards across Cambridge.
HOW YOUR GIFTS TO SUPPORT GRADUATES GO FURTHER Heeseo Kwon is a first year PhD student at Fitzwilliam whose Land Economy PhD is on the topic of planning, growth and regeneration. Her research covers urban growth, behavioural theories, transport and housing.
CREATIVE FUNDING It is expensive to undertake a research degree: the combined fee and living expenses for a Home student are around £20k per annum, rising to over £40k per annum for Overseas students. Given the high cost, graduates conventionally fund their study through a combination of research grants, loans, personal contributions and, in some cases, hardship support. Why is this useful to know? Because it reveals the power of a smaller gift. Most of us cannot afford to fund a student fully, but smaller sums can be used by the College to leverage matched funding from other organisations.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Work on the MCR extension will begin this summer, but we are still fundraising for the final £150k of the total cost. Any contribution to this project, large or small, will be greatly appreciated. Even smaller sums towards a graduate student’s costs can be used to leverage funding from other sources. Please consider making a donation to the Fitzwilliam College Graduate Bursary Fund to enable us to make more of these small grants.
Like many graduate students, in order to take up her place she had to creatively assemble funding from multiple sources. This was made possible thanks to the award of a Fitzwilliam PhD Studentship (£7,250 per year) and the Peter Wilson Estates Gazette Scholarship from Fitzwilliam (£1,000 per year). Securing these scholarships triggered funding from the Cambridge Trust (£10,000 per year) and also led to her receiving a Department of Land Economy scholarship. Heeseo comments “The scholarships from Fitzwilliam were undoubtedly the trigger for further funding that made my PhD possible. I am very, very thankful for the support I have received!”
The 150th Anniversary Campaign
SUPERVISIONS AT FITZWILLIAM Dr David Cole, Director of Studies in Engineering, and second year Engineering student Charlotte Attwood discuss the special role that supervisions play in enhancing learning – for students and Fellows.
It is well known that supervisions are a distinctive and valuable part of a Cambridge education. The smallgroup teaching they provide gives students the opportunity to gain a much deeper understanding of a subject, and in many cases question a world-leading expert in their field. What is less well known is that the benefits go both ways, as David and Charlotte explain. Charlotte’s schedule certainly overthrows the lazy student cliché: with 9am starts most days, on an average morning she’ll have two or three lectures, followed by an experiment in the lab. Along with her fellow lab students, she’s currently building a robot and is on the mechanical team building the chassis. In the afternoon she comes back to Fitzwilliam and reads through her lecture notes, then attempts the examples papers she was set in those lectures. “I like to do this as soon as I’ve learnt the material” she says, “as it keeps the information fresh in my mind.” She will then attend a supervision and do some more work around dinner time, followed by netball or hockey practice, both of which she plays for the College. Charlotte describes the intensity of university academic life as being a bit of a shock initially. “It was difficult adjusting in the first term because I wasn’t used to how to work in a university setting. I’d spend hours on questions because I was worried that if I didn’t turn up to a supervision with everything completed it would be frowned upon, but actually they want you to try as much as you can without overloading yourself so that you have material to discuss in the supervision. I soon realised that the supervisors aren’t trying to catch you out, they’re there to help you!”
“Quite often a student will ask a question that I haven’t been asked before” says David. “What the students probably don’t realise is that the supervisors are learning at the same time, because the act of teaching means that you improve your own understanding of the subject. Often students come along to a supervision and say that they had no trouble with any of the questions and could answer them all perfectly. As the supervisor you realise that can’t really be the case, and then you discover that perhaps they don’t have quite the complete understanding they think they have. That’s really the purpose of a supervision – to talk though a topic and try to make sure the students have got as good an understanding as possible.” Supervisions also help Charlotte to focus. “I definitely benefit from having structure to the system of my work, rather than
being given work that’s optional. It means that you can’t slip through the net. I also know that I need to do a certain amount of work to get the most out of a supervision, so they motivate me. Supervisions make it a lot easier to digest information. You have an expert in the field teaching you, and in amongst the explanations there are little forks in the road where we discuss things around the subject that wouldn’t be covered in lectures.” Charlotte mentions that David likes to throw in a “cheeky” on-the-spot Tripos question to really test them. “As horrible as this can be – because obviously there’s a lot of pressure – it’s really eye opening and a great way to see if there’s material that you don’t quite grasp. It makes the exams less scary and if you get stuck you can get a live explanation.”
TEACHING & RESEARCH
amount of questions. We’ll read through the lecture notes, star anything that we don’t quite understand and then get Dr Cole to explain it to us.” David is able to compare his experience of teaching – and being a student – at Fitzwilliam to his time as a lecturer at another university. “Having previously been a lecturer elsewhere, I know that the supervision system and the relationship that you have with the students is very different here. At Cambridge and Fitz we can pick up almost immediately any students who are struggling and offer appropriate support.”
In 2016-2017, our undergraduates received more than 20,414 hours of small-group teaching. The interaction between students is yet another benefit, with supervision partners often able to help one another. David says “I do try to encourage the students to support each other, because if one student has worked out how to answer the question and then explains it to another student, it benefits them both. Again, that’s something that comes from the small-group teaching environment and is part of what makes it so special.” Charlotte and her supervision partner are certainly very organised, meeting up before a supervision to ensure that they get the most out of it. “We both try and come with roughly the same
Although the supervision system has been a fixture of a Cambridge education for many years, during his long association with Fitzwilliam David has seen a lot of changes. “When I was an undergraduate the lectures were basically the lecturer writing on the blackboard with chalk, and there were very few handouts so you had to write everything down by hand. When I mention this to my students I can see their eyes glaze over! I do sometimes try to recall what it was like as a student in order to understand how they might perceive what I’m doing or telling them. I also find excuses to tell them about my research if I can weave it in somehow!”
Dr David Cole first arrived at Fitzwilliam in the early 1980s to read Engineering, returning a few years later to study for his PhD. He has been a Fellow of the College since 2000, and is Director of Studies for Engineering and a Senior Lecturer in Cambridge University’s Engineering Department. His research is concerned with measuring, understanding and modelling the dynamic interaction between drivers and vehicles. Charlotte Attwood is a second year Engineering student who involves herself in as much as she can in academic and extracurricular life at Fitzwilliam. Achieving a first class grade in her first year Tripos exams, Charlotte is also a keen hockey and netball player and helps to organise Engineering events at the College.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Although students contribute part of the cost of their teaching through the fees they pay, the College must cover the remaining balance. You can help support College teaching either by setting up or contributing to an endowed subject fund, or by giving to the expendable Teaching Fund. More than 175 alumni supported the Teaching Fund in 2016-2017, many of whom made their donation as a result of speaking to a student in the annual telephone fundraising campaign.

The 150th Anniversary Campaign
FITZWILLIAM LIFE Our students triumphed last year on the stage, the water and the cricket pitch! Donations from alumni were instrumental in their success.
FITZ AT THE FRINGE! A whole host of talented Fitz performers decamped to Edinburgh this summer to wow the crowds at the 70th Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Thirteen productions had a Fitzwilliam connection, but the Fitz Barbershop and Sirens put on a particularly impressive performance. Louise Harris (Psychology & Behavioural Sciences 2016) is a Fitz Siren. She received an award from the E D Davies Fund to help cover her Edinburgh travel and accommodation costs. "We performed our show 'AcaDemic Two: Cambridge A Capella Returns' four times, alongside our lovely and talented friends the Fitz Barbershop.
I am proud to say we sold out all of our shows bar one – by a mere four tickets – and the reviews were overwhelmingly positive. We were so delighted to be a part of this spectacular festival and to represent Cambridge University – particularly Fitzwilliam. The experience has certainly prepared – and excited – us for our future endeavors; the Fitz Sirens are now planning to take Cambridge a cappella all the way to Japan! I am extremely grateful to have been awarded the travel grant that enabled us to showcase our hard work at the Fringe Festival. I would like to thank The E D Davies Fund very much for this invaluable opportunity."
STUDENT OPPORTUNITIES FUND AWARDS Thanks to alumni donations to the Student Opportunities Fund, dozens of students were able to undertake extracurricular activities in 2016-2017. Thank you for your support. Adil Jaulim (PhD in Medical Science 2016) received a Charitable Project Award. This enabled him to cover the costs associated with running a half marathon in support of the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. "The Royal Marsden March is a charitable project based in my local community. It supports the latest in cancer research, diagnosis and treatment at the worldrenowned The Royal Marsden Hospital. As a training surgeon I have always felt the need to give back to my community and to promote awareness of different cancers. I am passionate about cancer research
and getting one step closer to eradicating cancer from our society. I contributed to the Marsden March this year by undertaking a 14-mile half marathon between Chelsea and Sutton in London. I not only raised well over £1,000 for the charity, but also encouraged community members to take part the following year. The event fostered team spirit, but most importantly brought unity and hope. On a personal level, it helped my organisational skills, managerial skills, my own fitness and most importantly my communication skills. I look forward to undertaking this challenge once again next year." Matthew von Lany (Natural Sciences 2016) travelled to Ethiopia to volunteer at a school and children's home. "During September I spent time volunteering at an orphanage in Addis
Ababa. Ethiopia remains one of the world’s least developed countries and the top recipient in Africa for development aid. I worked as a science teacher for the Kidane Mehret Organisation, which cares for around 150 children. I taught Maths, Chemistry and Physics, and after a few days we had a steady stream of younger children who were fascinated by what we were doing and who kept asking to get involved. The teaching was a truly worthwhile experience and one that I hope to repeat in future years. In addition to improving my teaching and language skills, I hope that I have inspired some of these kids to become scientists too! Thank you so much for your generosity in contributing to the Student Opportunities Fund, it makes it possible for students to better understand different countries and their cultures through sharing skills and experiences."
HOW YOU CAN HELP
You can help students to excel during their time at Fitzwilliam by contributing to the Student Opportunities Fund, which made 146 awards in 2016-2017 to allow students to undertake transformational projects, including travel, charitable work and research. To support students taking part in sport, you can donate to the Sports Support Fund.
SPORTING SUCCESS Fitzwilliam PhD student Ashton Brown (Education 2014), President of the Cambridge University Women's Boat Club, led her crew to a glorious victory in the 2017 Cancer Research UK Women's Boat Race. The crew beat Oxford by 11 lengths and in a record time of 18 minutes and 34 seconds. Ashton said: "Fitz has supported me with awards from the Paul Day Sports Fund, as well as with academic funding for my PhD which allows me to not worry as much about my personal finances. But more importantly, I feel like everyone in the College is looking out for me. The emotional support is huge – the process of trialling can be very tiring – and being in charge this year it was nice to feel like someone was looking out for me while I was so busy looking after the team."
In the 2017 May Bumps, the Fitz W1 crew – after a very quick bump on Pembroke W1 – obtained blades in the top women's May Bumps division. The crew are now at position 13, having gone up eight places in the span of two years. Alumni and students had a very enjoyable afternoon cheering them on in the sunshine at the Billygoats' Pimms Party. Congratulations are also due to the Fitz Cricket Team for Cuppers success for the second year in a row. In June, Fitzwilliam made it to the final following an enthralling 87-run win over Robinson and posting Fitz cricket’s highest ever T20 score of 234. The team’s consecutive win in the final, played against Emmanuel at Fenner’s, was particularly historic, as prior to last year Fitzwilliam had not won Cricket Cuppers since 1972!
The 150th Anniversary Campaign
2017 TELEPHONE CAMPAIGN Hundreds of alumni donated more than £240,000 to the College in yet another record-breaking telephone campaign. Thank you!
The amazing final total was achieved thanks to the generosity of more than 300 alumni and the dedication of the team of student callers. The £240,000 pledged will be received by the College over the course of three years.
source of income for the College, and even modest donations quickly combine to create a significant sum. The campaign’s real strength is in numbers, with donations worth £20 a month or less raising almost £95,000 over the next three years.
The campaign took place from 20 March to 3 April, and the donations made go towards supporting students, either through unrestricted gifts or donations to the Bursary Fund and Teaching Fund. The Bursary Fund assists students who need financial support, whilst the Teaching Fund helps to ensure that our students receive small group supervisions led by worldleading academics.
The campaign’s organiser Hannah EllisJones said: “I’m really proud of the student calling team, they worked incredibly hard. Thank you so much to the hundreds of alumni who spoke to the students, for both your time and generosity.”
The campaign saw 13 student callers speak to almost 600 alumni over the two-week period, and also resulted in the students gaining valuable careers advice. Some conversations lasted well over an hour, and many stories were exchanged about how Fitzwilliam has changed over the years. The telephone campaign provides a vital 20
Donations worth £20 a month or less raised almost £95,000 over the next three years.
Randeep Nag (MML 2015), Student Caller “The telethon was great fun and showed me how strong the community spirit is amongst Fitz's alumni. It was a pleasure to speak to former students about their experiences at the College and beyond, and I received some valuable careers advice in the process. I also really enjoyed being part of the calling team and gained excellent communication skills (and weight from all the Kinder Eggs). I thoroughly recommend that everyone gets involved with the campaign – it’s a great feeling supporting the College.”
GIVING TO FITZWILLIAM There are many ways in which you can make a gift, a number of which have tax benefits for you and Fitzwilliam.
If you are a UK taxpayer, you can increase the value of your donation by choosing to donate through Gift Aid. Gift Aid adds an extra 25% to your donation, at no extra cost to you. Higher rate taxpayers can also reclaim the difference on a gift between the Basic and Higher (40%) rate of tax. This can be done by contacting HMRC and asking them to amend your tax code, or through your Self Assessment tax return.
Cash Gift with Gift Aid, Basic Rate Taxpayer
Cash Gift with Gift Aid, Higher Rate Taxpayer
Cash Gift with Gift Aid, Additional Rate Taxpayer
Final Cost to Donor
Benefit to Fitzwilliam
Example: A gift to Fitzwilliam of £1,000
Single and regular gifts You can make a single donation, or set up a regular monthly, quarterly or annual gift. This can be done online or by returning the enclosed giving form. Alternatively, you can contact the Development Office to donate over the phone by credit or debit card, or make a bank transfer. Cheques should be made payable to ‘Fitzwilliam College’.
Donating straight from your salary or pension
Gifts of listed shares, securities and real property Gifts of listed shares, securities and real property by UK tax payers have become one of the most tax-efficient ways of giving. They attract full relief from Capital Gains Tax and, in addition, allow you to claim Income Tax relief on the full value of the gift at the time the shares, securities or real property are transferred to the College – a double tax saving.
If your employer, company or personal pension provider runs a Payroll Giving scheme, you can simply tell them to make a donation to Fitzwilliam from your salary or pension before taking off any tax. For example, if you pay tax at the basic rate of 20% and make a monthly donation of £10, you save £2 tax (20% of £10), meaning the actual cost of the donation to you is £8. Contact your Human Resources department to set up Payroll Giving.
Donating via your Self Assessment tax return
Your company may also operate a giftmatching scheme. To find out if your company operates such a scheme and to obtain a copy of their matching gift form, please contact your Human Resources department.
