It’s April 2021 and although some restrictions are easing, virtual events are here to stay for the foreseeable future. Ever since the pandemic hit, the events industry has had to adapt to streaming events online. There have been many benefits to hosting virtual events, for example, organisers are able to reach wider audiences, and from different parts of the world. Which works out great for us, as here in London, we’re able to ‘attend’ events that take place all over Britain. And on that note, we have listed a handful of great events that you can be a part of…
Regent College London Facebook Live Events
Many of you may know by now that host Facebook/Instagram Live Events every week. We aim to cover a range of topics such as Student Finance, How to Apply, and much more! They usually take place every Wednesday from 5pm and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you wish. For our next Facebook Live Event, Kylie Hazeldine (Head of ARWA and Partnerships) and Dr Chris Wood (Head of Research, Publishing and Enrichment) will be talking about our Self-development programme; Thinking into Character (TiC). Why not join us? It will be a great interactive live discussion, that you can take part in!
