In News

The Consultation Corner board

Hello! Samuel Dedman here – your neighbourhood VP Education for 2017/18.

Spaces such as these are the cornerstone of academic study while at University, and therefore it is an important element of the Zone’s representation work to ensure that they are as good as they can be.

Since our last update, Holdens’ have been working on getting together a set of branding guidelines to help us implement the new brand. This includes how to use the brand in order to reinforce who we are based on everything we learned during our consultation process, which saw 10% … Read the rest

Do you get the information you need when you need it? Tell us at one of our FREE Comms Workshops…
