Who is SocPals for?

The SocPals sessions are open to anyone who is taking Sociology

1a and/or Sociology 1b, regardless of your year and degree.


What's it all about?

SocPals runs study sessions led by 2nd and 3rd-year Sociology

students. The sessions give you a chance to discuss the topics of

the sociology lectures in more depth, as well as study skills such as

how to read and prepare for lectures and tutorials, how to take good

notes, write essays and do the end-of-semester exam.

It's also a great way to get to know other students from your course

and from other years. It's all very informal and biscuits are

guaranteed, so come along!


How can I get involved?

Just come along to any of the sessions –No sign-up beforehand is needed!
