Discover Religions and Theology Day - 23 November 2010
The Discover Religions and Theology Day enabled students to explore and experience the study of Religions and Theology at The University of Manchester.
The day consisted of an overview of the wide range of courses available, a careers presentation on opportunities following graduation, a mini-lecture by an active academic from the department, a tour of the facilities, and a choice of workshops from across a variety of topics in Religions and Theology.
In addition, there were plenty of opportunities to ask current staff and students about studying at Manchester and life after graduation. This day provided a real understanding of what it is like to study Religions and Theology here.
