‘We will build a Global Lounge that will serve as a hub for intercultural activity on campus and consolidate services for international students coming to the University and for UK students seeking outgoing mobility opportunities.’ University of Bristol Strategy 2016
Inclusivity. Diversity. Community.
The Global Lounge is set to become a hub for all our students to exchange cultural experiences, integrate and be inspired to become global citizens. The physical space (which will open in February 2021) will be where both UK and international students can connect, learn about each other and find out about global opportunities of studying, working, volunteering and travelling abroad. There will be opportunities for students and graduates to get invaluable experience of working with people from different cultural and socio-economic backgrounds, which will enhance their intercultural communication, customer service, team working and various other skills, contributing to their future employability.
This Autumn we are launching the Global Lounge in a pop-up mode with an exciting programme of cultural and social events.
