In total, we are committed to be a warm and friendly space that ALL are welcome to join.We intend to hold events that faciliate student development wether that be in public speaking or career advice from guest speakers, whilst on a lighter note- providing a safe space for students to make friends through various fun events, from games nights to bowling trips.

Our goals

  • Access and Outreach. This year we are placing focus on access and outreach efforts, this will include mentoring BME students all the way to helping with personal statement writing.
  • Collaboration. Throughout the course of the year, we have plans to hold many career talks with professionals and bring potential graduate opportunities to our members.
  • Discussion. Having talks and engaging with our members is also a priority of the society this year.
