Go on... Give it a go

Give it a Go week is back! This week will allow you to test out a whole host on what's on offer for you. From volunteering opportunities and recreational activities to sports and societies at both our Uxbridge and High Wycombe campuses. Give a Go weel will be kicking off on Sunday 11 to Sunday 18 October.

Give it a go is a jam packed week full of fun activities provided all for free courtesy of the big deal. This week is the perfect chance to get involved with the wider University community and help you settle you into university life.

Bucks New University compete across the country in the British Universities Colleges Sport (BUCS) league and it is not too late to still compete for your University! During 'Give it a Go week' we take the competetive edge off and open the training sessions to everyone, so make sure to check out the 'Give it a Go' timetable and head down to the training sessions you are interested in. There are also social media pages for all of our sports clubs and you can find them on their individual minisites over in our sports section.

If competitive sports aren't your thing, our Sport for Fun programme continues as normal throughout this week with your choice of Badminton, Boxing, Table Tennis and even a trampoline park! There is no need to worry if you have never tried any of these before, all of our sessions are inclusive of all abilities and our ambassadors will ensure that you get the most out of the sessions. If these are not your cup of tea, you can always hire one of our bikes for just a £20 deposit.

Societies are one of the best ways to enhance your university experience. They are a great way to have a varied social life and meet like-minded people. At Bucks, we currently have 27 active societies, including ACS, First Aid Society, Karate, RAG and Sign Language. Most of our societies will be holding sessions during 'Give it a Go week' so why not give something different a go!

If you fancy giving a little something back then volunteering is the way to go! It's a great way to get involved, meet new people and enhance your CV. Throughout 'Give It A Go week' there are several volunteering opportunities on offer from helping out within our local community at one of our local sports clubs to writing letters and cards to send through Postpals for a sick child. The volunteering highlight of 'Give it a Go week' is the Brighton Beach Clean. Volunteer your time to help protect the sea life this #Unblocktober and then get the opportunity to explore the city of Brighton for a few hours!
