Enrichment and Personal Development

Your time at UCR is all about enhancing your learning experience and getting the most from your time with us.

Our enrichment activities provide you with the opportunity to try new things, develop new skills and meet a variety of new people from your campus; and from employers and businesses that are looking for people like you.

Simply choose an activity that suits your aims and future aspirations, whether it’s having fun as part of a sports club, developing your leadership skills through student voice activities such as Student Union, or building your confidence and gaining career insight through an employer masterclass; the choice is yours.

Our activities can change from term to term and are individual to each campus so keep an eye on the enrichment board to see what is available. If there’s nothing there that takes your fancy you can either speak with a Personal Development Coordinator and suggest some other activities or speak with them about setting up your own club.

Our first event of the year will be the Freshers event held at each campus. This will include employers from the community, volunteering opportunities and aspects to support a healthy lifestyle.

What’s in it for me?

Enrichment is personal to you, but our range of activities are designed to help you develop confidence, stand out on job and university applications and boost your chances of realising your aspirations; whether it be further study, progression to Higher Education, an apprenticeship or employment.

Who can attend?

All current students are welcome to attend enrichment sessions, this includes learners studying full-time courses, apprentices, adult learners and Higher Education students.

For more information, speak with the Personal Development Team at Rotherham Campus or your HE Achievement Coach.

Be the Voice of Change with the HE Student Voice!

What’s it all about? 

As a Course Rep, you step into the role of your programme’s student ambassador. You’ll have the opportunity to connect with fellow HE Course Reps from different departments, along with Beth Hall, our HE Achievement Coach. Together, you’ll discuss course content, the learning experience, campus facilities and other important topics. Course Reps also serve as a bridge to gather feedback from your peers.

Why should you join?

Becoming a Course Rep means you actively shape the student experience not only for yourself but for your fellow students.

When do we meet?

Student Voice meetings happen every term throughout the academic year, and each session lasts about an hour.

Ready to make a difference?
