There are many other things outside of timetabled lessons happening at the College.
Whether it is football, dancing, music or debating, Enrichment gives you the chance to develop existing interests or try out new ones, such as scuba diving or setting up a business. Whatever you choose to support your academic programme, you will be enhancing your learning, developing new skills and adding another interesting dimension to your CV. You don’t have to take up endless enrichment activities, and it is important that you consider your current commitments to get a good balance between academic work and enrichment, with time to relax out of College.
For new students, when you come to Getting Ready in June, you will be able to sign up for some of the enrichment activities which require trials or taster sessions; such as sports teams. These activities will need to be signed up to early to allow your timetable to be adjusted accordingly.
There is an Enrichment Fair in early October during Freshers Week, which has stands for all the different clubs and societies in College, and will also be attended by local voluntary organisations. This will give you an opportunity to ask questions and talk to students about all the different activities in College. After you have visited the Fair you will have a few weeks to attend as many clubs and societies as you want to get a feel for them, before deciding which you would like to commit to. These activities are mostly after College or during lunchtime and can therefore be slotted into your timetable. Remember to check the day and time of the activities to ensure a spread across the week. The number of students wanting to take part in a particular activity may also affect your chance of participating.
Enrichment is a great way to meet like-minded students, make new friends and get the most out of College, so get involved.
