Think of SUT+ like a sandwich.
More training and information on Monday and Wednesday are the lovely bread. The deeply satisfying plant based filling is the Simulation Exercise ‘Ballybreag 2.0’ on Tuesday.

A breakfast bap before the off. We will start sharp at 10.30am
Ballybreag 2.0 – QSU Mandela Hall
You’re an elected officer at Ballybreag Technological University Students’ Union. Things aren’t quite right since the merger, and it’s time to take big decisions on the rumoured new student centre. Some of the local landlords aren’t happy with the way things are, the new College President is on the prowl for cuts, the head of Student Services is a force and the crossover file you’ve been given is a joke.
And now a journalist wants a word.
Put some of what you learned through your life and at SUT into practice in our fun (hopefully) and hectic (certainly) Simulation Exercise.
Some parts of this event are intense and will be noisy. Mature and realistically unpleasant themes, alongside some frankly silly scenarios.
