Groups and networks
Student-Led Discussion Network (SLED)
SLED is a network of student-led discussion groups that span all three undergraduate levels. These groups give students a space to engage in open discussion, explore their understanding of module content and benefit from the input of their peers. The network of groups provides a unique arena for undergraduates to test out ideas and work collaboratively in a relaxed atmosphere.
Behind the News
Behind the News is an issue-based discussion forum that brings university students and expert guest speakers together.
Oriented towards debating current and topical issues, the aim of Behind the News is to make deliberative contributions that are policy-relevant and impact upon the world of politics.
