New! Give It A Go

Give It A Go (GIAG) is a programme of events open to all students at the University of Kent.

The aim is to provide a variety of activities for students to try out, these could be craft sessions, sports, trips off campus and much more! There are no memberships or long-term commitments and you can get involved in as many events as you want. Simply check the event listing to see if you need to book in advance or can just drop in on the day to get involved.

Give It A Go is a great opportunity to try something new, meet new people and develop your skills.
