    Hiya,

    Try and find a few things that are related to your subjects or that demonstrate/help you to develop a personal skill. Most importantly things that you'll enjoy doing.

    -Events, museums, lectures, magazine articles, books, sport.........

    Just use your free time to find out more about your subject.

    Online free courses, online lectures/tED talks, podcasts, documentaries (tv and radio), read university websites, blogs etc etc

    Follow your interests and it won't feel like hard work.
