What to expect

Couch Conversations (CC) session are on throughout the week with in-person and online options. Join a session that suits you! You can join in one, or a lot – it’s your choice.

  • CC sessions are informal, fun and inclusive chats with your peers.
  • Sessions are held in small groups, with the aim to make everyone feel comfortable and heard.
  • CC connects students from all campuses, countries, study areas and walks of life.
  • Whatever your motivation, whether it's to share experiences, develop cross-cultural relationships, practice your English or hear about tips and tricks for work, study and play - everyone is welcome!
  • A few student and staff facilitators will be there to simply guide the conversation if required and give it a bit of structure. They can sit back and let the conversation flow, or they can help if there's a topic you'd like to talk about or an activity to help get you started. 
  • Each session will go for approximately an hour (60 minutes).
  • You can drop in and out as you need to.

Once you've registered you'll receive a confirmation email. You'll also receive a reminder email on the day of the session.
