The Voice of Undergraduate Students

The English Students' Union

Anyone taking 0.5 FCE (one half-course) or more is a member of the English Students’ Union (ESU). The role of the ESU can be summarized in three points:

  • To act as a liaison between English students and the English Department; (2) to provide a community for English students
  • To provide a community for English students
  • To organize events that promote learning and community-building among English students.

The ESU hosts a variety of events and meetings throughout the school year, targeted at English students who want to expand their network, outlook, and interest. These events include: academic seminars, pub nights, mentorship meetings, etc. All students taking ENG courses are encouraged to attend.
