Enrichment: development and stretch

As part of a complete programme of study, students are involved in a range of enrichment activities. These additional opportunities ensure you are an attractive applicant to universities and employers.

There is no cap of the amount of enrichment activities students can become involved in and we pride ourselves in offering a range and depth of additional activities that we believe to be without parallel.

Our enrichment opportunities include (but are in no way limited to):

  • Duke of Edinburgh Gold award (open to all students – no previous experience needed)
  • Medical Society; our wide-ranging package of activities and opportunities to support students wishing to pursue a career in medicine
  • Law society
  • Bar mock trial competitions
  • Competitive team and individual sport
  • Participation sport
