Sorry, there is no page at the address /activities/societies/society/economics/.
Your Sabb team is going to sit down every month and chat about what they’ve been up to - and we’re going to film it. What better to guide the convo than actual questions from you?
Soooooo what do you want to know?
Ask them anything! What they had for breakfast, their favourite spots in London, nightmare lecturers, weirdest thing they’ve ever done, will they be running for Prime Minister… Yeah, anything.
Ready? So are we! Submit a question here!

You’ve been spending so much time on coursework and essays that you’ve forgotten you live in one of the most marvellous cities in the world.
Stop staring longingly out the library windows and get out for a much-deserved study break! Read on for seven easy and awesome 2-hour study break suggestions from student blogger Susannah.
I think we are all guilty of occasionally failing to take full advantage of this city especially when coursework gets out of control. London is particularly lovely at this time of year, so pack up your backpacks and get off campus for an adventure!
1. Mulled wine and wandering about at the Southbank Centre Christmas Market
Travel time: 15 minutes by foot/10 minutes by bus
Activity time: 1-2 hours
This is the perfect study break complete with amazing treats, mulled wine, and jolly people. Added bonus if you grab some wine and then attempt the Christmas Tree maze! Give it a go any time between 10am and 9pm from Monday-Thursday as well as extended hours on the weekend.
2. Movie break at the Underground Film Club
Travel time: 20 minutes by foot/12 minutes by bus
Activity time: 1.5-2 hours
This place is a serious gem! Enjoy a classic film or new release in the vaults underneath Waterloo Station for a truly unique movie-going experience. There is a fab lounge as well as superb snack and drink bar. Plus, cocktail 2-for-1 happy hour from 6-7pm on Tuesdays-Thursdays can be just what you need after a long day hitting the books.
3. Christmas lights on Oxford Street
Travel time: 25 minutes by foot/10 minutes by tube
Activity time: 1 hour
Need a little pick me up? Pop into a café on Oxford Street and then take a stroll to view the gorgeous Christmas light display. Decked out in 1778 glowing white orbs, this is truly what Instagram dreams are made of.
4. Have a laugh at Angel Comedy
Travel time: 20 minutes by bus or tube
Activity time: 1.5 hours
Laughter is the best medicine! Rally your study group to head to this fab venue that hosts free comedy every single night of the week starting at 8pm. Amazing! Make sure to arrive a bit early to avoid disappointment.
5. Embrace your inner artist at the Saatchi Gallery
Travel time: 20 minutes by tube/30 minutes by bus
Switch up your brain function with some time roaming about this super cool gallery. Now is the perfect time to visit with their new Post Pop: East Meets West exhibition, which celebrates the legacy of pop art from around the globe. The gallery is free to visit and it is open every day from 10am-6pm.
6. Ice skating at Somerset House
Travel time: 5 minutes by foot
This is an absolute must for wintertime activities in London! Plus, it’s the ideal study break since student discount tickets for only £8.50 are available Mondays-Fridays from 12:30-4pm. Bundle up and don’t forget to book tickets online!
7. Shake it off at Bar Salsa
Travel time: 15 minutes by foot
If secretly singing along to T. Swift’s “Shake It Off” isn’t enough to get you through your study session, then take a break and get your dance on! Bar Salsa offers free beginner classes in a range of Latin styles nearly every night of the week. Take some time to get some much-needed exercise plus a good laugh with friends.
