A really interesting scheme which allowed me to meet with other people in other courses. This scheme has also helped me to feel like I have contributed to something that will last longer than I study at the university.


I would highly recommend joining the Library Champions, it has really been a highlight of my second year. The group of people are really friendly and welcoming and it is a great opportunity to interact with more students while also improving the library with a number of interesting projects!


It's a perfect opportunity to develop social skills as well as academic ones. It’s fun and you get to express your ideas in ways you probably can't in academia.
