Building Confidence and Community - And The Role of Extra-Curricular Activity
From Benjamin Davies
Students reflect on their experience of engaging with extra-curricular activities; the opportunities this brings for widening their experience and skills, broadening their career aspirations, making new friendships, and increasing their sense of belonging to the university community.
Explanatory note: Video narratives are compiled from extracts of weekly diaries maintained by first year students in the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Manchester Met in autumn 2021. Without changing meaning, minor edits are applied to otherwise verbatim written content to improve fluency in the spoken word. Narrated by Anita Nessa, Neisha Woolrich-Fraser, Zoe Ka-Ncube, and Ajeet Samra (students and B.A.M.E. Ambassadors at Manchester Met) to preserve authors’ anonymity.
