Enriching your experience

College life is all about finding a balance between studying and socialising.  What goes on outside the classroom is just as important as what happens inside, and will help shape you into the person you want to be.

We have a team of staff dedicated to helping you get the most out of your time at Oaklands.

Outside the Box

Outside the Box is a collection of workshops that will give you skills that you might not gain through your course alone. There are four main categories including:

  • Life Skills (such as nutrition and time management)
  • Personal Skills (such as applying to university and cyber safety)
  • Give it a Go (such as cookery and sport)
  • Life After College (such as business bootcamp and interview skills)

The Box

The Box is the College's student website where you can chat to your college friends and stay updated about the College’s facilities and services.

Sport Maker

The College’s Sport Maker programme aims to increase the number of active students at the College by offering a number of sporting opportunities.

These are open to everyone, not just students on sport courses. There are sessions available at lunchtime at both campuses to get involved in.

All sessions are free, run by qualified coaches and you can take part at a level that suits you.
