Our different events

Tech events

Throughout the year we also host tech events. These include workshops on varying skills, from setting up your laptop to practicing interviews. For some of our tech events, our sponsors also partner with us, giving you a chance to learn from someone in the industry!

Social events

We can't have a society without socials! Hoppers have many socials throughout the year welcome to anyone, including first years, post graduates and staff. In the past, we have organised events such as movie nights and ice skating as well as virtual pub quizzes and game nights.

Big events

Every year, we collaborate with companies and other societies to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day in October and International Women's Day in March. These annual events are a great opportunity for networking, skill development and, of course, to have fun! You can read more about our past big events or find out about our upcoming big event.
