If you ask students what they like about the College, they frequently highlight our enrichment programmes. We are proud of our tradition of offering students the opportunity to participate in additional courses and activities that broaden their experience, and develop their personal skills.

All of our first-year students and most of our second years follow an enrichment course; some may complement examinable subjects, while others help develop skills that may be important for higher education, employment or simply adult life.

Enrichment is designed to closely meet the needs of students; responding to the outcome of a student survey and focus groups. The programme allows you to choose a ‘theme’ for your enrichment that may be more closely linked to your academic programme, progression plans or personal interests.

Consider what you might choose and why and how what you do might enhance your CV and/or prepare you for your next step and the future as you firm up progression plans.

The programme which is available has been grouped into strands or themes of activity which may help decide what you want or need to do.

Whatever your motivation there should be something that appeals. So… have a look …have a think…and consider your choices.

Includes many visual performing and expressive arts courses and much more.
