Transitioning to a new place – online workshop

Equip yourself for a global future.

REGISTER NOW TO ATTEND THIS EVENT

Transitioning to a new place is an interactive, virtual workshop brought to you by Student Inclusion and Kynfolk, for all students, home and international (students from the UK will have the opportunity to explore their own intercultural skills during the session, and offer personal insights).

Going to university can be a big transition, and you may experience a lot of emotions in the process and worry about your ability to cope with your new life and environment. This session will give you a chance to meet with others who are also new to university and will give you space to share and listen. You will have the opportunity to co-create a list of ideas to help you, and those around you, thrive in your new environment.

During this workshop we will:

  • talk about how you are feeling about being at the University of Bristol
  • share some of your hopes and the challenges you face in leaving where you’ve come from and adjusting to a new environment
  • reflect on what keeps us well, and reminded ourselves to be patient and kind to ourselves and others
  • be reminded of the University support services that are available

This is the second of two workshops, which aims to help students navigate their way into a new culture via interactive presentations and discussion.

Virtual Iftar – come dine with us!

As the month of Ramadan begins, Student Inclusion invited Muslim and non-Muslim members of the University to join them for a virtual Iftar celebration!


During this event, speakers talked about their experience of fasting during Ramadan whilst sharing a virtual dining experience! Student representatives from the Bristol Islamic Society, Muslim Medic and Black Muslim Society joined staff from Student Inclusion to talk about their personal experiences and what the month of Ramadan means to them.

Event speakers included:

  • Robiu Salisu, Student Inclusion Officer (BAME) – host
  • Aamir Mohamed, President of Bristol Islamic Society – giving a recitation and reminder of what Ramadan is
  • Nimra Naeem, President of Bristol Medic Society – sharing the experience of Muslim Medic Students during Ramadan
  • Fatima Abdulsalam, President of Black Muslim Society – talking about what Ramadan means to you

What is Ramadan?

Ramadan is the most sacred month of the year in Islam. Muslims observe the month of Ramadan, to mark when Allah (or God) gave the first chapters of the Quran (Holy Book) to the Prophet Muhammad, during which period they fast – meaning that there is no eating or drinking during the hours of daylight.
