Intercultural workshops: call for applications

Virtual workshops with students from Hong Kong

Join us for sessions in June to:

What’s this all about?

As part of 2 online courses for students from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and Hong Kong Baptist University, we are looking for participants to attend practical workshops on intercultural communication.

It's also a great opportunity to make new friends and become more knowledgeable about other cultures.

ICA is currently held weekly on Wednesdays (12pm UK Time) and Thursdays (4pm UK Time).
