Our Top Must-Do Student Activities for This Spring

Spring has finally arrived, bringing with it a burst of energy and excitement. As the semester break is fast approaching, the sun is starting to shine more and more, making it an ideal time to create a bucket list of activities and goals for this term.

So, grab your planner and let's dive into some exciting experiences to make this spring unforgettable!

Explore the Outdoors:

Spring is the perfect season to enjoy the outdoors and discover the beauty of nature. With the warmer weather and blossoming flowers, you can make the most of nearby parks like Selly Oak Park which is a great place for you to enjoy some fresh air and greenery, walks, or even a run. You could also take a leisurely walk around campus to soak up the sunshine.


Attend a Campus Event:

Check out the events on campus this semester, from concerts to guest lectures. Information about these can be found on the university's social media platforms or even on flyers being handed out. Attend one to broaden your experiences and socialise.


Volunteer in the Community:

There are plenty of opportunities for volunteering in the community. This can be a fulfilling and valuable experience, as it allows you to make a positive impact on the lives of others. You can find volunteer opportunities with local organisations or participate in campus-wide service projects to contribute to the community.

Picking Rubbish

Plan a Weekend Getaway:

With careful planning and budgeting, a weekend getaway with friends to take a break from university life is always a possibility. You can venture out to nearby cities or attractions, such as Stratford-upon-Avon (Shakespeare's birthplace), Warwick Castle, or the Black Country Living Museum. You can even take it a notch higher and take a camping trip, or relax on a beach, recharge and create lasting memories.

Friends Overlooking a Lake

Start a New Hobby:

Is there something you always wanted to learn or try but never had the time for? Spring is the perfect time to pick up a new hobby, whether painting, photography, cooking, or playing a musical instrument. Who knows, you might even discover a hidden talent!

Gym Workout

Attend a Career Fair or Networking Event:

Networking is crucial for graduates. It’s a good idea to attend a campus career fair or networking event to connect with employers, learn about job opportunities and improve professional skills. These will soon come in handy once you leave university.

Seminar Session

Explore Local Cuisine:

Are you a foodie? Birmingham provides you with the perfect blend of food and drink hot spots to enjoy. Take time to explore and try out new foods from the variety of local restaurants and cafés that offer a diverse range of cuisines. This can be an exciting experience and of course, something you can do by yourself or even as a group.


Reflect and Set Goals:

Take some time to reflect on your university course and the accomplishments you made and set goals for the rest of the year. Clear goals will keep you focused and motivated for the remainder of your final term.
