"It does, there are multiple societies and events for international culture showcases, holy celebrations etc."
"They do, they have great chaplaincy facilities and they hold many informative events and socials about tolerance, respect, diversity etc. Not only this but lecturers try to speak clearly and make themselves easy to understand all the time. Plus, there are English free revision sessions for students that need the extra language support."
"I know there are different societies for some ethnic groups, there's the Afro-Caribbean society and various others as well."

"Yes. They have student parties specifically for international students."
"There's a wide range of activities, including societies representing various continents, areas and countries. There's a BAME and Women's sabbatical officers in the union."
