Education Society

A brand new society has recently been set up by a group of second year students on the Education BA(hons) course to offer a place to share thoughts, ideas and for students to get to know each other across all courses.

Kallan Thomas, society president said “we wanted to find a way of being able to connect with other cohorts from all undergraduate and postgraduate routes within the School of Education and thought a society would be a great way of building a community.

The society is open to everyone, where you will be able to meet with new people who share a common interest in Education. We are organising social events, movie nights, interesting talks by influential speakers in the Education field and much more”.

The Education Society recently hosted their first event, which was a bowling tournament and the turn out was great!
