Programme social life

In addition to academic studies, the programme offers a range of social activities. We host a social event during Welcome Week and appoint social representatives on the programme at the start of the academic year to organise small, frequent events throughout the year. 

The programme uses social media to allow students to circulate details of student-led social activities and events.

The aim of the social events and social media is to provide opportunities for students to get to know each other outside of class to provide an excellent student experience while on programme.
