Getting Involved

Make it fun. College isn’t just about your lessons and the subjects you study. There are lots of other great things you can get involved in. We call this ‘enrichment’…

Enrichment

Being involved with enrichment activities at the College gives you the chance to make friends, have fun, develop new skills and be part of something different. Universities and employers place a high value on enrichment activities, so being involved can have benefits for your career and academic future too. Our programme provides a wide range of fun activities for everyone and you can do as many as you like. All enrichment activities are free*, so there is no reason not to give them a go!

We have listed some of the activities available this year, but we are always open to new ideas as well. So, if there’s something that you want to try – from archery to karate – just let us know!

ALL ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES ARE FREE*, SO THERE IS NO REASON NOT TO GIVE THEM A GO!
