A Happy New Year to all of our student volunteers. We hope you all had a restful break and are ready for semester 2. You will have noticed that this edition of the newsletter is in a slightly different format. In fact, this newsletter is packed full of exciting information and updates, so sit back and enjoy.

Global Leadership Development programme (GLDP)
So, this is a bit of an exciting one! During Achievement week in February 2024, we will be delivering our GLDP to a cohort of students and local sanctuary seekers. Would you like to be one of our student delegates who gets to participate in this dynamic and diverse programme? Only 20 places are available, so please register your interest now.
Looking for something different in the new year? The Students' Union has several volunteering projects that you can get involved in! Their projects are a great way to develop new skills and meet other students. For more information, please email the Students' Union.
