Finished your exams but staying up at uni for a while to soak up as much of the student life as possible? While your mates are still trucking along with their work, why not take a peek into the lives of other students, by attending one of the many uni shows on offer.
Graduate Fashion Week may have just finished this week but there's still plenty of student-related, artsy fartsy work to be lapped up by the nosy public. And even better, graduate shows are almost *always *free.
Whether you're a fellow creative student and want to show your support for local graduates (or just want to check out the competition), or end the uni year with the culture vulture mentality you had intended to start the year with, see what's about in your city during June and July, before you head back home.
And because we're kind, here's some gooduns we've plucked from the wide range of exhibitions planned over the next couple of months.
