Global Lounge is a virtual space for students and staff to meet, discuss and celebrate the people and things that make our University so wonderfully diverse and unique. We meet on MS Teams and students are invited to share memories, photos and stories on a chosen theme. If you would prefer to just listen that's fine too! Themes we'll discuss include food, traditions, landscape, celebrations, festivals, faith, fashion, journeys and loads more.
All are welcome - whether you are a home or international student, whether you're studying in the UK or in a different time zone, whether English is your first or second (or third or fourth) language, we want to meet you. We all love looking at pictures, so you could prepare a powerpoint of images to share, upload photos directly to the Teams chat on the day or share your screen and take us on a Google image search. If you are feeling a bit shy and want to just listen and learn that's OK too!
Global Lounge takes place approximately every 3 weeks. For more information about dates and topics, please sign up to the Academic Coaches Canvas topic.
We hope to see you there. If you have any questions please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
