Academic Reading Parties & Study Days
The Burn offers a special sense of a shared experience that brings students and academic staff together, boosts enthusiasm for their subject and benefits their education.
Every reading party is different, with some focused more on taking a break from a tight teaching calendar, and others enjoying the opportunity of valuable one-on-one discussions between academics and students away from the syllabus and the lecture theatre.
The Burn has a long history of hosting academic reading parties from across the world. We have students from Scottish universities and also have regular visitors from the rest of the UK, Germany, the United States, and South Africa.
