WORLD WEEK
We are delighted to introduce a new enrichment initiative for RPA - World Week. We have created a full and varied programme of activities for students to take part in during the week of the 9-13 July. All students need to do is to review the activities and then share with us their top three choices. You can do that by using the World Week Registration form which can be accessed here or scroll to the bottom of the page to view it. Those choices need to be made by Monday 16 April. We will announce the activities allocated by the beginning of June.
