Ustinov College provides a unique environment in which postgraduate students can engage in dialogue and debate across different cultures and disciplines, both informally and through the Global Citizenship Programme.
Scholars in the Global Citizenship Programme organise a number of seminars, debates, and research forums. The projects provide opportunities to develop important intellectual and professional skills for life after studies.
As a Ustinovian, you can help organise these events and activities, and attend those given by other students or academic staff. Explore the links below for individual projects, and contact the teams if you would like to get involved as a volunteer.

I didn't expect the range and quality of the seminars and lectures held at Ustinov, which are both educational and social (grad students tend to flock to free snacks and wine). You can hear student papers, or listen to international authorities, depending on the night. The real trick is arriving while there are still seats!Michael Baker (MA Medieval English Literature)
