What you do outside of your studies is just as important as what you do while learning
Well Together #ConnectedCommunity
Monday 2 November - Friday 6 November
Well Together week has been developed to engage our community to take part in various activities, and encourage you to take time out of your day and do something for yourself. It features many activities that already happen at the University - with a few extras thrown in.
Here at the University of Dundee we are all part of a unique, Connected Community. Getting involved in extra-curricular activity and volunteering means you can take a well-deserved break from the library, look after yourself, and develop your transferable skills along the way. This looks fantastic on your CV and will impress employers – they aren’t looking for just degrees. Engage in our Connected Community to maximise your potential, have fun, and get the most out of studying with us.
Why get involved?
- There are so many amazing activities to choose from – get involved and build your sense of belonging with likeminded individuals.
- Taking a break from study is 100% necessary. Look after yourself and reduce stress.
- Maximise your employability potential – have things to talk about on your CV and at job interviews other than your studies.
- Become eligible for an employability or volunteering award from the University.
- Learn new skills, make new friends, and become a part of something bigger.
