A unique way to share cultures
As part of this programme, you’ll be paired with a cultural mentor from one of our amazing in-country destinations.

Maximising your exposure to different cultures will make you feel comfortable when collaborating with future colleagues and external partners. It will also bridge barriers and connect you with other students or graduates around the world.
