Extra Information: 

An optional sustainable living module could include how to cook simple quick meals, how to reduce food waste, how you can be more sustainable with cosmetic and clothing choice, and other things.

This could be very useful to new students, especially those living away from home for the first time. As well as improving general student sustainability and the universities sustainability overall.

However, it would probably need to be short/quick and optional for new students to care.
