SHAPED (Supporting Hatfielders' Academic Progress, Employability and Development) is a personal development programme run by students, for students and supported by the college. This programme is unique to Hatfield. It involves a wide range of talks, discussions and networking opportunities covering academia, extra-curricular, student-life and employability.
If you look closely, you'll find SHAPED Events are advertised everywhere, from our weekly emails, to the Hatfield JCR App, to your SHAPED Diary! Join the Facebook Group to get access to opportunities and upcoming talks.
You can also access information on SHAPED through DUO, by clicking on 'Hatfield SHAPED Programme' under 'My College' from your DUO homepage.

The Hatfield Lions are a network of Hatfield alumni who are happy to be contacted by current students to discuss how their careers have developed and how they have reached their current positions. The Lions (and recent graduates known as Cubs) often return to Hatfield for the Association Formal, Lions Buffet Networking Lunch or simply to give a SHAPED talk on their career.
To access the Hatfield Lions' Network
The College Officers and SHAPED Exec will be working throughout the year to improve the Hatfield Lions' Network.
