Lancaster University boasts a hugely diverse student body, with 25 percent of the University’s 12,000 students hailing from over 100 different countries, creating a truly global university community.
The UPP Foundation is partnering with Lancaster University Students’ Union to support a project celebrating this rich diversity. The project includes The World at Lancaster Week which will see Lancaster students from around the world come together in a series of events designed to showcase different nations’ culture, food, academic learning, dance and music. As part of The World at Lancaster Week, Lancaster’s international students will also visit primary schools in order to share their language, culture and experiences with children in the local community.
Ben Mathews, Deputy Chief Executive of Lancaster’s Students’ Union said:
“At Lancaster we are proud of our global University campus and it is vitally important that we celebrate Lancaster’s international student and staff body. Thanks to the generous support of the UPP Foundation we are able to run this fantastic project enabling our staff and students, as well as the local community, to better understand and celebrate cultures from across the world.”
