International Postgraduates: Cultural adjustment – experiencing difference and negotiating identity

Would you find it helpful to explore, in a supportive group, the cultural challenges you have experienced while studying and living in the UK?

The Counselling Service and International Student Advice are offering a short-term therapeutic group in which to explore the cultural challenges of being an international postgraduate student at King’s. This will take place in a series of five, 1.5 hour interactive, small-group sessions for international postgraduate research students. The first group sessions will take place in May/June 2017.


These supportive and focused sessions will allow you explore issues which may have personally impacted you, while you have been living in the UK, including:

  • Practical and emotional challenges of living in a foreign country away from home
  • Social isolation
  • Cultural adjustment – experiencing difference and negotiating identity
  • Experience of barriers to integration to the UK

These session will offer a supportive, confidential and respectful space in which to share your experiences and stories. The group also offers an opportunity to further develop your intercultural competence through reflection and discussion.

To register interest, please contact jennifer.raper@kcl.ac.uk by the 30th of April.
