The World at Lancaster

Today has seen us take a trip around the world without leaving the shop as we were joined by the International Office and the Confucius Institute for a day of internationally-themed activities.

The International Office take care of everything related to the students who come from cour tires across the world to study at Lancaster, whether they come on an exchange programme for a term, a year abroad or for their full course of study. They are also responsible for the students we send to universities abroad as part of their studies.

The Confucius Institute is one of a network of similar centres set up to promote Chinese culture and encourage the study of Chinese language in the UK.

Throughout the day, we have found out more about the countries we have links with, and taken part in an afternoon of cultural activities such as face painting, music and calligraphy. A great day has been had by all!
