Wednesday saw the Lifelong Learning Centre’s (LLCs) end of term lunch, a social event for mature, part-time and foundation year students. This offers students from across the University the chance to meet others who may be in a similar situation, such as balancing multiple commitments or returning to education after a gap of a few years (or more!).
As a fairly new member of the LLC, I can clearly remember my first student social event as the most enlightening part of my introduction to the centre. It was through meeting people who have decided to return to education, either as a way to change or advance their careers or learning for leisure, that the aims of the LLC were brought home to me. LLC students and mature/part-time students from elsewhere across the University can find support here when they need it. Meeting with members of staff over the next few days reinforced my impression of a group of very dedicated people who appreciate the many different plates being juggled, and who respect these students for the commitment they show to studying here.
Those who have been to one of our end of term lunches or a mature student drop in will know that when they walk through the door and are offered a cup of tea, we really want to hear how you’re getting on. We are interested in all mature, part-time and foundation year students: your work, your studies and your life outside University and look forward to meeting as many of you as we can.
