Have you ever wondered what university students do in their spare time? 

We work closely with current  UEA students who run clubs and societies - did you know some of them offer workshops to schools in the local area? We work with some fantastic groups of students who are keen to support PSHE and citizenship curriculums, and as a bonus they're able to give real life insight into their subjects, interests and what they get up to in their free time. Student-led workshops are a great way for your students to learn about something new at the same time as increasing their university knowledge.
