How to use Zest

Within Zest there are six sections easily navigable as links on all of the pages. These six pages are: travelling, lifestyle, socialising, study, jobs and careers and health. Within each page there is a description of the page and how to get involved, followed by a forum and links to useful news articles. Further links are also found on the page ‘Useful links’ connecting you to information and resources and ‘Useful documents’ where you can read and download information to keep on your device. Occasionally we will add other features to these pages.
