Do Something Different Festival

Introducing the Do Something Different Festival

This year, in partnership with UEA, Do Something Different will be taking over campus next week, 19th - 23rd of February 2018!


The best and most popular DSD events to date will be making a return for another round, as well as a mountain of brand new and exciting opportunities for you to learn new skills, learn new things and to have fun! From dance sessions, film-making workshops, language classes, sports training, open lectures and employability workshops, there is so much happening on campus that are all free to enter and open to all! 

This will be a reading week for most students, so you will not have to attend lectures, and can attend as many events as you can handle! This is your chance to enjoy yourself, free from deadlines and teaching, and to do something that you enjoy! Every day of the week will feel like a party! 

Postgraduate Students, Med students and Integrated Masters students will still have teaching as normal. To make our events open to all, we shall be ensuring that as many events as possible take place outside of teaching hours. We're also working on live-streaming some events so you can take part from home!

India Edwards welfare, community and diversity officer

As the end of the academic year approaches many of you will be looking to the future in terms of employment, which may involve undertaking a summer or graduate internship. Being an 'Intern' is a relatively new concept. It can also be a legal grey-area in terms of your employment status. What you are expected to do and how you are treated as an intern can really vary from company to company.
