International Festival

The aim of the Cultural Festival is to increase engagement and cohesion by encouraging students, staff and the local community to share their unique experiences. With students and staff from all over the world represented at UL, this is a great opportunity for UL to celebrate its cultural diversity and to help educate others about cultures, values and viewpoints different from their own.

The festival this year will be held on Wednesday 10th October with a number of free events throughout the day which include a Study Abroad Fair, “A Taste of our World” Food Fair, Open Heart Meditation, IWAMD International recital and a Chinese Calligraphy & Origami workshop.
