Student Social Events and Activities
The School of Education has a dedicated support team whose job it is to make sure students are welcomed into our academic community. We have a particularly strong international focus and provide numerous opportunities for our many postgraduate students to come together and celebrate their individual backgrounds and cultures.
Several weekend events take place throughout the year which provide opportunities for exploration of the countryside using kayaks, mountain bikes, and walking gear. The Lake District weekend held in a location just outside Keswick in Cumbria is always memorable, and the outdoor activities weekend in Derbyshire's beautiful Peak District is always popular too.
We also encourage students to suggest and organise their own events, such as the Research Students Annual Conference, outings to local shows and cultural evenings.
