This Welcome Week was a multimedia marvel
Welcome Week Spring Semester 2021
Although not all of our students could join us on campus, we still enjoyed an action-packed Welcome Week together online!
Monday: The Essentials
Tuesday: Taster Sessions
On Tuesday, students in Spain received taster sessions of life in their new city, such as learning essential Spanish phrases and got involved in a mini-debate about culture, diversity, and stereotypes with our very own Campus Director, Nicola Jackman.
Whereas on the Geneva campus, our new students received a ‘Switzerland boot camp’ which included everything they needed to know about settling into their new life in Geneva, such as learning about student residence permits and opening a bank account.
Wednesday: Cooking Class
On Wednesday, students from all of our three campuses joined together for an interactive cooking class led by Sid Ahmet Bellat who is not only our Student Council President in Geneva but also a chef!
Sid showed us how to whip up a simple yet delicious three-course meal of tabbouleh, a chicken pita, and a super simple mug cake. Yum!
Thursday: Online Conference & Games Day
He discussed the business and cultural aspects of leaving your home, family, and friends behind and how these experiences shape you as a person. As well as representing yourself and your nationality in new environments.
Then all of our students had the opportunity to take part in a virtual games day using Kahoot. Student Services also took the opportunity to mark everybody’s hometown on a map to see where in the world our new Bachelor’s students are from.
Friday: Wrapping up the Week
That afternoon on our Barcelona campus, students enjoyed an Olympics-style event for our students on campus. They then wrapped up the week by enjoying paella on campus whilst our Bachelor’s and Master’s students got the chance to mingle.
What's up next?
Join us for 2021’s first installment of our event series, Industry Insights with Giulia Motteran.
She’ll be discussing the importance of community building and partnership relations.
