Add a little colour to 2020

Between lectures, exams and assessment, study can feel a bit grey at times. In 2020, we challenge you to liven things up by participating In extra-curricular events and opportunities.

So many of our graduating students say getting involved in these opportunities was the best part of their uni experience – even if it meant venturing out of their comfort zone. Don’t believe me? Check out Sidonie’s story.

Here’s a little preview into what’s planned for 2020…
