Our English Conversation Club is an informal time, not a structured class. In a small group we talk about a different topic each meeting, with a native English speaker. Improve your English by practicing your speaking and listening, and make some new friends along the way! Anyone is welcome join this activity! The English Conversation Club is a free activity especially for international students or visiting scholars from overseas. But anyone who wants to practice their English is welcome.Due to the situation with the Corona virus, we are now holding the English Conversation Club online using Microsoft Teams (and not in-person).

The objective of the day is to celebrate the achievements of people with disability by promoting awareness, understanding and acceptance within our workplaces, institutions and communities. At UC we hold equity, diversity, inclusion and access as some of our core principles, so holding an event to celebrate the day for those across UC who identify as having a disability is something we take great pride in. The format of the event will consist of two key activities:“You can’t ask that!” Q&A panel discussionUC student guest speakerStaff and students across UC will be able to submit anonymous questions in the lead up to the event. The four panel members will then address these questions in a constructive manner, whilst offering individual experiences and perspectives.
