The Academy offers students a fantastic experience both on and off campus. The Student’s Union plays a key part in student life on campus, welcoming all students and supporting them through their time at the Academy, representing students at local and national level, supporting them in their studies and simply offering a place to socialize. The Student’s Union has a large number of societies, catering for most cultural, political, sporting, intellectual and social tastes. Students are encouraged to participate in activities outside the curricular commitments in order to broaden the educational base, to gain achievement in other fields, and to stimulate interest in a range of enjoyable activities. The extra curricular activities will not only give a chance to relax away from the studies but, more importantly, give time to socialize and make friends with students from other countries and cultures.
