Apply for the Career Day Committee!

Apply for the Career Day Committee!

“You study English? What job are you going to do then?” Everyone studying English Language and Culture has surely gotten this question at least once in their life. As a study association, we are here to hopefully arm you with some possible answers, because there are in fact many career possibilities with your English degree! As you may know, Albion organises a Career Day every year. However, this year, in line with the theme of this year’s ‘444-viering’ Humanities Matter, Albion wants to go a little bigger. That’s why we’re creating a Career Day Committee! Do you want to help make this day possible and polish up your resume? The committee will meet several times to brainstorm on possible speakers, workshops and advertising and you are hopefully present at the career event itself to help out. Are you interested? Send an e-mail to albionesque@gmail.com or shoot a Whatsapp message to our chair Bart via 06-42328136

Albion to The Rescue

Albion to The Rescue

Stressed about your resits? Don’t worry, we got you fam. Albion has now set up its own tutoring army for tutoring sessions! If you are not feeling confident about Linguistics, Philology or Literature, you can contact us through acq.albion@gmail.com and let us know what you need help with and when you would like to receive this help; then we will set you up with a tutor. Our tutoring sessions are mainly aimed at the resits, so hopefully none of you will need it. The hourly rate will be €10,- for our members and €15,- for non-members. That’s a steal for a good grade.

Let the Games Begin!

Let the Games Begin!

Do you like to spend time with your fellow Albioneers? Do you like board games? Do you like being part of a daring new plan? Then you’re in luck, because Albion is starting up a brand new concept. It’s called “ABV First Levels” (ABV as in Albion Board Games Venture) and will basically be a group of students organizing get-togethers in which we will play board games (and possibly D&D if people are interested). We are still figuring out the details, but our first meeting will be right after the exams of January. If you want to stay posted about this abundance of fun, join our Whatsapp group via this link: https://chat.whatsapp.com/DIbpiRLwdv1GNAOqNllXy1. All group participants get to co-decide when we’ll meet and what we’ll be playing!
Wanted: Angler Writers and Editors

Wanted: Angler Writers and Editors

The Angler is the official magazine of the English Department at Leiden University, both printed and digital, written by students and for students. For next year, we are looking for people who want to join our lovely committee and assist in both writing and editing the magazine throughout the year, but also for people who just want to write a few articles every now and then (no obligations). If you’re interested, please send an e-mail to albionesque@gmail.com and don’t forget to tell us if you would like to be a committee member or just a writer. We hope to welcome a large group of magazinists next year!
