Richard Huish College’s Academic EnRICH programme relaunched this week with multiple Careers talks taking place on campus.

Two RICHTalks took place, the first hosted by Geography Course Manager, Nikki Lewis entitled ‘Tectonic Armageddon – a realistic possibility?,’ and the second by Guest Speaker, Barrister Emma Martin from the Albion Chambers in Bristol, who discussed the reasons behind the current Barrister Strike.

A series of RICHTalks run each term and are open to all Huish students with an interest in the topic being discussed. They are an opportunity to hear from experts and explore an area of interest beyond the curriculum and vary widely in content. Upcoming talks include ‘Gender and the Public Bathroom, ‘The Psychology of Serial Killers’ and ‘Epigenetics’.

The Medical Careers Academy also launched today, a specialist branch of Huish’ Academic EnRICH provision for those looking to make applications to competitive degree programmes of Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Science.

The well-attended introduction talk outlined the elements of the programme which includes; guidance on admission tests and interviewing, debating medical ethics, building confidence in using medical terminology, Alumni support and advice on work experience, amongst much more.

Students at Huish discovered the many EnRICH opportunities at Huish at the Freshers’ Fair held on September 13th, embracing the chance to sign up for the many sporting, musical, community and fun activities on offer. All students will be involved in the College’s EnRICH Day in December where the usual teaching timetable will be suspended so students can trial new activities and widen their experiences.
