English Conversation Corner
Our English Conversation Corner gives Resident Members the opportunity to practise their English conversational skills, in a relaxed and casual environment.
College Tables are informal collegial lunch-time discussions on a ‘grand challenge’ issue in a graduate school field. Dine over lunch while learning from an expert about the latest interesting issues in their field. Not restricted to Members. Usual dining room prices apply.
Bridge Night is held every Wednesday of the month and is not restricted to Graduate Union Members. We welcome all gaming groups, so bring your friends and partake in any quiet board game you like! From chess, to checkers or scrabble, the game is yours!
Italian Conversation Dinner
Dine and speak Italian with an excellent and experienced teacher every first and third Tuesday of the month. All you need to join is an interest in this beautiful language and some basic vocabulary.
Residents’ Special Breakfast
Resident Members and non-resident Members meet over a hearty breakfast on the second Tuesday of every month with some incredible breakfast ideas by our chefs.
JobFocus gives the opportunity for a small group of Members to discuss their experiences in gaining employment after having gained their postgraduate qualifications. Together the group also weighs up the advantages and disadvantages of different job-seeking approaches, as well as possible solutions to the many challenges involved.
Monthly Luncheons are lunch meetings held on the first Wednesday of every month. There are guest speakers from various disciplines ranging from politics, law, arts and culture, to medicine, health, law and the humanities. These luncheons are open to Members and non-members.
Once a month, female graduates come together to discuss topics including politics, philosophy, current affairs, social history and contemporary society. These meetings then continue over lunch in the dining room. Forums are open to Members and Non-Members.
Residents’ Meet and Greet
Meet and Greets are a vital part of the college and graduate experience. Here graduates have the opportunity to mix with like-minded individuals over a meal and free drinks for Resident Members. Non-resident Members, visitors and guests pay bar prices.
