From March 8 to March 12 2021, join us for a week of activities and events that showcase and celebrate the diversity of the UCL community. Whether you yourself are an international student at UCL looking for a friendly face or if you are just someone who has a keen interest in knowing more about the world, you’ve come to the right place! We have a tailored programme of events throughout the week, fitting into themed days of celebration.

From cook-a-longs to quizzes, there is plenty for you to get involved with, led by your societies and your officer team! Click on the links to be taken to the listing for each day and get involved or scroll down for a summary of what you can expect!

With such a diverse, international student body, UCL students hail from all over the globe and each have unique experiences and journeys before, during and after their time on campus. We will be talking to current students and alumni about their experiences and stories whilst at UCL and beyond. The communities that you build at UCL often go on to last into your graduate life, in many different ways!

We will be closing out International Festival 2021 with A Live Broadcast Interviewing Alumni and Current Student Leaders about their International Experience at UCL. The idea of this broadcast is to share insight into the unique experience of international students at UCL and in London and how having communities plays an important role both during and after your studies. 

It will be streamed from 3pm GMT on Friday 12th March on Facebook - Click here to find the page!
Why not have a look at some other content around the International Experience in the meantime? 

A important part of many students UCL experience is the Study Abroad Programme. Not only does it give them a once in a lifetime opportunity to immerse themselves in a new culture and environment, but it opens their mind to a new possibilities for their future. Watch Dr Karen Edge, UCL Institute of Education, Reader in Educational Leadership and former Pro-Vice-Provost (International) as she leads a discussion with six alumni about their global journeys.
