What is Active Students?

Sport doesn't have to be competitive, Active Students is all about having fun, getting active, making new friends and building or learning new skills.

The scheme is available to all University of Hertfordshire and is totally free!

Just find a session that you would like to take part in and turn up with your Student ID card. Simple.

The Active Students programme has now taken a break for Christmas!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for participating in the programme – we have had a great Semester and we hope you have too!
