As part of Neurodiversity Celebration Week, we’re hosting our first Neurodiversity Café. The event is for students and staff who identify as neurodivergent (that is, who have or may have autism, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, ADHD, Tourette’s) to get to know one another and share their experiences of neurodivergence at university.
Over Monday lunchtime we have a PG coffee morning in Rochester building at Medway campus. Come along to meet other PG students, staff from the Graduate and Researcher College and PG Network reps. If you’re an undergrad considering postgrad study, you’re also welcome to come along and find out more about the postgrad experience.
Wednesday: Diamond Orchard planting, Language Taster Sessions and Exam Chambers practice sessions
We managed to plant some trees last week in the snow (!) but need your help to plant more.
