At Itchen, we provide a variety of enrichment opportunities for you during the course of your studies. We believe these enrichment opportunities will allow you meet new people, help build your skills, add to your CV and make your time at Itchen even more enjoyable!
All of our learning areas will provide you with the chance to go on local, national and even international trips. These trips will tie into your courses, letting you contextualise your learning, enrich your studies and explore brand new destinations. Many of our trips also provide you with a chance to conduct research, putting learning into your hands.
Student Ambassadors and the Student Voice
We hope that you will want to get fully involved with college life, and you may want to become a Student Ambassador. You will be joining a group of students who will become involved in special events and marketing activities.
You will also be representing the student body by meeting with senior leaders to ensure that the views of students are taken into consideration at every level of college management. It is your college, so the 'student voice' is important to us.
Being a Student Ambassador also gives you the opportunity to become a student governor and represent the student body in an official capacity on our board of governors.
