Student Life Centre

Personal development

Your personal development runs alongside your academic development and provides a critical strand in your learning journey while you are at University. The Student Life Centre provides you with support for your personal development while you are studying.

Taking time to reflect on your experiences and consider ways to move forward is a valuable experience. Supported reflection can enrich your journey, help you make informed choices and gain good transferable skills for your life beyond university.
