Activities & Sports

At ý, we organise social and physical activities all year round providing our students a fun and relaxed environment to help them stay healthy, interact with peers who share common interests, enhance leadership skills and prepare for the future.

We believe studies are just part of the student experience; we encourage our students to take part in the social events ranging from raising awareness through a charity campaign, joining a debating session or simply stretching their legs and arms at the local climbing centre.

Students who love sport will have plenty of opportunities to meet up with likeminded friends – or make new ones through a large variety of sports clubs here at ý.
