The UniLife Transitions Group is a platform that exists to provide students from BME backgrounds the opportunity to share their experiences of university life, talk about the transition to studying at King’s College London and promote, support and celebrate the diversity and success of BME students.

Ask yourself:

• Are you a 1st year student from a black or ethnic minority background?

• Is your course meeting your expectations so far?

• Are you having doubts or concerns about continuing with your current course?

The counselling service in conjunction with the department for diversity and inclusion would like to invite you share your student experience and offer an opportunity to hear about services and support available to you during your time at KCL.

This group setting is an open and confidential space for 1st year students from black or ethnic minority backgrounds and aims to create a safe space in which students can discuss issues concerning race and culture on campus.

Our aim is to support you in whatever way we can, especially if you have concerns about your time at university and are having doubts about continuing your studies.  Equally, if you have positive experiences you would like to discuss we would welcome you to share these also.

Book on to a session on SkillsForge.
