Join our workshop to:

  • Understand what soft skills are and why they matter during your time at Cambridge University and in your future career.
  • Learn how to recognize your unique soft skills and effectively present them to future employers and within the academic context.
  • Gain practical guidance on leveraging your strengths and improving areas of development in soft skills.

Unlock the potential of your soft skills to excel both at Cambridge University and in your future engineering career and join us for an interactive online session on 25th October.

This is not a webinar. This is an interactive workshop and you will be expected to contribute to the session.

To participate you must have your webcam switched on.

Most students and researchers will experience culture shock in some form when interacting with people from all over the world in Cambridge. While we all speak the same language, the unwritten rules of social norms can make our interactions challenging. If you have recently moved to the UK, you might feel lost or disoriented. If you come from the UK but are not accustomed to interacting with people from different cultural backgrounds, you might also struggle. International diversity is key to Cambridge's success, so embracing culture clash as part of the journey is important.

Join our workshop to:

  • Gain a better understanding of the cultural integration process.
  • Learn about culture shock and what you can do to navigate it.
  • Discuss the positives of diverse cultures as part of your unique experience at Cambridge.

Get ready to overcome culture shock and join us for an interactive online session on November 15th.

This is not a webinar. This is an interactive workshop and you will be expected to contribute to the session.

You must have your webcam switched on.
