What is 'Let's Talk'?

An inclusive conversation for students on current topics. Join us for the 'Let's Talk About' conversations to chat about current topics, share tips and experiences, get a better understanding of uni life, and learn about a bit of psychological theory too. The sessions offer an inclusive space, which is open to all students.

Don't worry if you don't feel like talking. It's okay if you would rather listen.
