Ready, Set, Revise

Celebrated annually on 27th March, World Theatre Day is a great excuse to embrace all varieties of theatre. Like us, we’re sure that many of you are missing attending plays and shows in person.

They’re co-designed and co-delivered by your Student Advisors, myself (Lauren) and Charlotte and are useful for first year students who want to start developing their academic skills further or for anyone just wanting a refresher on the basics.Continue reading
