Welcome to John Snow College

Student Enrichment Programme (SEP)

John Snow College supports the wider student experience (WSE) providing a programme of enrichment opportunities to enhance personal development, in line with the University’s WSE Strategy, which complements the great work of the JCR President and executive committee.

Enrichment themes include:

Physical and mental wellbeing: a diverse and exciting offer of a series of activities, prioritising engagement, physical wellbeing and mindfulness. Including: Art, Pilates/Yoga, Paddle boarding and self-defence.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: all activities are designed to be inclusive and accessible to all, capitalising on our diverse College population.

Global Durham: celebrating Durham University’s global presence by supporting networks, projects and placements.

Employability: sessions to support future employment/continued education. Such as: skills mapping, leadership, volunteering & outreach and CV development.

*Online SEP and WSE Provision*

During third term John Snow College students are engaging in remote learning in response to Government movement restrictions imposed during the COVID-19 global pandemic. Therefore students will be able to access a programme of online wider student experience to support their ongoing personal enrichment.

The programme will include a variety of online resources, interactive activities and support material developed by College staff and the Alumni community.
