An international Christmas

While you may be getting ready to go home for the holidays, some of you may be spending Christmas at University including many of our international students. During the festive period take time to share your traditions with others, learn how to make a Christmas dinner, and keep in touch with your loved ones.

Share your traditions with other students

Being at a diverse and international university means there are many students here from a number of different countries.  Exchange different traditions and learn something new about your flat and coursemates.  

Meet up with other students

You can also meet up with fellow students over Christmas by signing up to the 'Creating connections at Christmas' scheme

You can also join Friends international Birmingham, a non-profit organisation who will be putting events on for international students staying in Birmingham over Christmas and provides a platform for students to make new friends. Find them on Facebook

Keep in touch with friends and family at home

Even though you may be spending Christmas away from home, it’s important to remember to keep in touch with friends and family, regularly phone, text and video call with them. Why not organise an online zoom Christmas quiz with family back home.
