Social Events

Our social events are free to attend and are a chance for you to meet fellow students from around the world, relax, learn about British and other cultures, and practice your conversational English.


Conversation Cafe:  Each Thursday!

Moving abroad is chance to start a new life and have a new experience - but it is also a new challenge! We are here to help you overcome those language and cultural barriers. 

Come to Conversation Café to practice your conversational English and meet people! Conversation Café offers a safe, fun and educational environment for all international students, helping you to settle into your new surroundings and make your transition as comfortable as possible. It is led by our home student volunteers who are there to help you to speak English as fluently as any British person!

Each week is themed around a topic and the emphasis is on fun and meeting new friends. Over coffee, tea, and biscuits we play games, do quizzes and have breakout sessions where you get to practice talking to people around a theme. Conversation Café will supplement the academic programmes you are doing to improve your English.

The sessions will be full of students in exactly the same position, so everyone will have something in common - a great foundation to build solid friendships upon.
