The Enrichment Programme

Teaching English as a Foreign Language

An intensive course introducing you to the TEFL teaching method and content is offered free to Heythrop students and recent graduates. This is good preparation for those considering taking an accredited TEFL course or working with summer language schools. Apply to Kim Burke at k.burke@heythrop.ac.uk by the end of September 2017.

Heythrop Students’ Union

The HSU is your opportunity to get involved with a whole range of extra-curricular societies and activities. This ranges from the intellectual stimulation of the Philosophy society, to the revelry of Heythrop’s Real Ale Society, the energetic netball society, all wraped up in the covers of the Book Club – as reported by The Lion newspaper. So whatever interests you have outside your lectures there is a society for you. The HSU also represents you and informs College policy to ensure you get the best experience possible. So if you want to shape your degree, there are plenty of opportunities to be active in the Union and make your voice heard as a programme rep, an officer of the union or a student ambassador.

Volunteering

Not only is volunteering a great way to get involved in your community, learn about yourself and meet new friends, it’s also a fantastic way to make yourself more attractive to future employers. Volunteering builds confidence and ‘soft skills’ – non-teachable attributes which play a highly important role in the workplace. For further details please contact Laura Watson at l.watson@heythrop.ac.uk. The deadline for applications is 30 September 2017.
