Events roundup 20-26 March

Here’s a round-up of what you can get involved in this week at Kent, including fun fundraising events as part of Kent Giving Week and getting ready for the job market with regional employers sharing their top tips as part of Working in Kent and Medway Week.

Monday: Exam support and free dance class

As we get closer to exams season, take time to read our exam webpages which include loads of support and events to help you get ready, such as a session on how to prepare for online exams.

On Monday you can also try Kent Union’s Booiaka dance class which is a cardio workout to music – as much dancing fun as a night out with friends!

Tuesday: Jobs Fair, revision workshop and Cooking Show

Kent Union’s Jobs Fair is happening from 11:00-14:00 in Eliot Hall. This is a great opportunity if you are looking for part-time, temporary or seasonal work.

Not sure where to start with your exams revision? Go along to SLAS’s free revision workshop on Tuesday.

Grab one of 100 free tickets to see Kent Giving Week’s ‘In The Kitchen Cooking Show’! Local chefs will share how you can recreate their signature dishes on a budget and you can then eat what they cook for lunch!

Wednesday: Graduation message board, Diamond Orchard planting and Relaxation Sessions (Medway)

Are you graduating this July? Head over to Nexus on Wednesday between 10:00-14:00 to write a message to your friends and/or family and we will share them at your graduation ceremony.
