Cultural and Leisure Activities

Over 290 people have taken part in cultural and leisure activities offered
by the Student Services Office over the last trimester of the 2010-2011 academic
year. These activities have provided to be excellent opportunities for participants
to mix with fellow students from different disciplines and of different nationalities.
The positive feedback from students has encouraged us to keep offering these
types of activities for the coming academic year 2011-2012. Some of the activities
which have been offered over this trimester have included:
