Enrichment - enhancing your college experience

In addition to the classes offered every college runs an enrichment programme with a wide range of extracurricular activities from sports to clubs and students’ associations. Enrichment programmes vary from college to college, but a range of sports and clubs are usually on offer along with great facilities and communal areas for socialising.

Many colleges have outstanding gyms and sports facilities with a great range of equipment helping each student reach their fitness and sports goals

The possibilities for enrichment activities are endless. All students are encouraged to take up a range of options to participate in new and exciting activities, develop personal skills, make new friends and gain valuable experience. Extra-curricular activities usually run on a daily basis throughout the week. Each session is aimed to fit around timetables and students have the freedom to choose which sessions they want to attend.
