Transitioning to a new place – online workshop

Equip yourself for a global future.

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.

Develop skills to equip you for the world of work!

Join us Thursday lunchtime for a free interactive workshop facilitated by Kynfolk, an intercultural training consultancy. There will be no breakout rooms and you can attend with your video off – so feel free to bring your lunch!

In this session our fantastic trainer Jo will help you to recognise the importance of being interculturally literate in preparation for the work place. The training aims to deepen your understanding of the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to be interculturally competent, and to help you think about how you can improve your ability to work across cultures while you are a student at the University.

We’ll look at the performance of global leaders and companies on the world stage, and also reflect on your own personal development.

Attendance of this webinar counts towards your Bristol PLUS Award.
