Students in the School of English, Communication and Philosophy have been exploring career and skills, expanding cultural horizons and trying something new on campus in the latest Reading Week Festival.

Over five days of autumn reading week, undergraduate and postgraduate students alike enjoyed opportunities to support their studies, relax and connect as well as socialising within disciplines.

On offer were 17 activities ranging from free tours of Cardiff’s landmark castle and special movie screenings to dodgeball and guide dog sessions.

Among wide-ranging academic-focused sessions were Researching Queer and Trans Herstory and Teaching English Around the World alongside special undergraduate and postgraduate-focused careers sessions.

Most popular were discipline-enriching socials for English Literature, Language and Philosophy bringing all years together in friendly pizza evenings.

Organisers from across the school’s disciplines of Creative Writing, English Literature, Language and Philosophy were delighted with the response.

“The aim is to provide opportunities for students to socialise with others in the school and engage with your topics of study in different ways. We couldn’t be more pleased to see our cohort enjoying exploring their subjects and making important social connections too.”

Autumn Reading Week Festival ran from Monday 7 to Friday 11 November.
