1064 572College is not just about studying for qualifications. You will also have the opportunity to try out different experiences, maybe take up a new hobby or learn a new skill. There are plenty of activities that will help you develop different interests and meet other students from other courses.

When you apply for a university place, training scheme, or job opportunity you will need to show evidence of wider achievements as well as good grades. Universities and employers want to know about your other skills including leadership, teamwork, motivation, commitment and time management. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll have fun and boost your self-confidence at the same time! Our enrichment programme will help you to demonstrate all these skills.

Activities include:

  • Sports teams and events (football, table tennis, gym)
  • Music (learn to sing, play the guitar, playing the drums)
  • Driving test theory
  • First Aid
  • Street dance
  • Sign language

We run day trips to:

  • Alton Towers
  • The Clothes Show Live
  • Thorpe Park

All activities and trips are subject to availability and may change depending on popularity.

We always try and offer the activities that students tell us they prefer so your ideas and suggestions are always welcome. Download the full list of activities, view our leaflet or ask the Student Services team.
