All face-to-face Take A Break sessions have been cancelled until further notice due to the recent Coronavirus cluster outbreak (Nov, 2020). Stay tuned to our Facebook page for further updates about Oasis and the Student COVID-19 information page for updates relating to the university as a whole. Note: the online Take a Break sessions are still running! 

‘Take a Break’ are fun and informal conversation sessions led by an Oasis Chaplain on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

The focus is getting students together for a chat and to check in and talk about whichever topic comes up!

Great for those who are feeling a little bit socially isolated. Also a great opportunity to practice your English (if it’s your second language).

The groups are for all students. Feel free to come and go during the hour.



Every Tuesday 2pm – 3pm –  hosted by Chaplain Deb – on Collaborate (accessed via Oasis Online FLO topic)
