Our popular annual 'Life Beyond the PhD' conference for doctoral students coming towards the end of their studies provides advice and training for planning future careers, and a forum for the exchange of experiences and ideas. Find out more about our most recent conference here.
Our Emerging International Leaders Programme on Freedom of Religion or Belief (FoRB), launched in 2017, will equip international students in the UK who are deemed to be potential future leaders and opinion formers with the skills and insight necessary to drive debate and influence policy in their home countries, and build a powerful global network.
Our Commonwealth and International Students Christmas conference in December has taken place every year since 1947. It gives international students studying in the UK the chance to experience a traditional British Christmas, to engage in a programme of thought-provoking and inspiring seminars and workshops, and to meet others who are studying away from home.
Work with schools
We have recently launched a new programme of workshops for school children, to promote social and civic awareness and equip them with the skills and confidence to become active participants in their communities.
For some of these workshops we are drawing on a recently discovered connection between Cumberland Lodge and Roald Dahl's children's story, The BFG. Recent academic research suggests that the house in Windsor Great Park that the Queen gifts to the BFG at the end of the book was referring to none other than Cumberland Lodge, where Roald Dahl spoke to a visiting students from the USA just a few years before publishing the story.
