Social Programme

Learning at Brunel Language Centre goes beyond tests and hard work. We appreciate the value that activities outside the classroom can bring. Both within the Language Centre and the University as a whole, we encourage our students to get involved with events and activities not directly related to their studies.

Our Student Services Officer puts together a calendar of events available to Brunel Language Centre students: 

Every week we hold at least one social event and one sports event.

Each month we run two day trips off campus, heading to places like Windsor Castle and the beaches of Brighton. 

Sometimes we collaborate with our colleagues in LBIC or the main University and hold joint events, giving you the chance to meet new people.
