Joining a society is a university rite of passage – there are lots to choose from and they’re a great way to make friends.
Step up and run a society though and you’ll still enjoy the good times but also gain valuable organisational and leadership skills, maybe even event management experience.
Going abroad as part of your degree is an amazing experience. You'll grow in confidence, enhance your employability and return to university inspired and motivated ready to excel in your final year.
We have numerous international study and work placements available and we'll support you every step of the way.
