How can I develop my Arts and Education network?
One of the most important aspects of a career in arts or education is networking, and the connections you make at university can last throughout your professional career and personal life.
But how are you supposed to develop these relationships – not to mention have some fun – while you’re stuck at home studying online?
Easy – join one of our awesome student societies! While many events have been postponed for the time being due to the COVID-19 pandemic, check out some of the Arts and Education-based clubs online to learn more about industry partners, have the chance to participate in future workshops and professional and volunteering opportunities, plus have a few laughs along the way!
Which society is right for me?
