Week 8: Learning Community Newsletter

Posted on 27 February 2023

All the latest from the department

First off I just want to say well done to Haddi, Susy, Mel, Luqman, Ziyu and Aasim who raised over £900 with their bake sale for Syria Relief last week! Really well-done folks.

In other news, it's week eight! With only two weeks of term left, there's still plenty to be getting involved in around the University. The politics coffee morning is on Tuesday from 9:30-11 in the Politics Reception area. It will be great to see you all and catch up. Then there's this week's Shut up and Write will be on Thursday (2nd) 12-2pm in D/L/036. Feel free to come along for a cup of coffee, some biscuits and a focused writing session.
