Development Weeks 2021
24 MAY – 4 JUNE
Development Weeks is two weeks in the academic year providing all students with dedicated time and space to take part in extra-curricular activity and gain Degree Plus Accreditation.
You are welcome to plan and host Development Weeks events ahead of the 24 May and we will be happy to host a recording of your event on our site.
Celebrate, Reflect, Introduce
This year, Development Weeks are being held virtually, offering you even more flexibility and scope to get involved in events and to host your own.
The tagline for this year is Celebrate, Reflect, Introduce. We hope to inspire you to achieve those aims throughout the two weeks.
This has been an academic year like no other. We want to celebrate the ways we have stayed connected, reflect on what we have achieved and give you the platform to introduce the wider Queen’s community to your unique skill, interests or hobbies.
The theme for this year is Connections
There are various ways that theme will apply to you through the different events and activities that are happening as part of Development Weeks.
Connect with business
Discover companies and roles and get expert career and life advice from leaders through employer information sessions, Q&A panels and Industry Uncovered sessions.
Building your online brand, your digital footprint and recognising how you come across to others through our bitesized employability sessions.
Connect with others
Improve workplace skills such as presenting, persuasion, negotiation and communication through virtual team building exercises.
