Intercultural activities

Cultural awareness and understanding is sought after by many graduate employers. Graduate jobs are likely to require you to deal with people from a range of different backgrounds and communicate with people across the globe.

We have a hugely diverse student body with a strong international community who are keen to share their cultures and learn more about the cultures of others.

You can get involved in events that celebrate the food, music, language and customs of different countries, while meeting people from all over the world and expanding your intercultural skills and awareness.

Intercultural volunteering

Bristol is a vibrant city with a lot to offer in terms of intercultural activity. Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, gain experience and make connections outside of the University. There are lots of charities based in Bristol who work internationally and welcome support from volunteers.

For more information on how to find organisations in Bristol to volunteer with, please look at InfoHub or email

How do I put on my own cultural event?

The Community Hub Lounge is a great space that you can use to host your cultural event or activity and you can even access funding of up to £200 to help you put everything in place.

If you would be interested in putting on your own cultural event, either as an individual, a group or as part of a network, please email The Community Hub team at
