Enrichment programme

When you aren’t studying, there are loads of activities and opportunities for you to have fun, make new friends, get active, support your local community or take part in something to boost your CV. You can also earn MET Credits by engaging in college life; accumulating these will entitle you to take part in special events, trips and prize draw

Obviously, things are a little different at the moment and we are building a Virtual Enrichment programme which features online wellbeing support, Sports challenges, Yoga classes and a 6 - week beginners Kung Fu course.
