Ustinov College provides a unique environment in which postgraduate students can engage in dialogue and debate across different cultures and disciplines. This happens both informally, as part of the everyday experiences in this incredibly diverse community; and through the student-led seminars, debates and other events held in College under the aegis of the Global Citizenship Programme.
Our college projects are interdisciplinary, inter-related and of significant extracurricular value for Ustinov students. They provide opportunities to develop important transferrable skills for their careers and life after their studies.
As a Ustinovian, you have the opportunity to help organise these events and activities and attend those given by other students or academic staff. Explore the links below to read about the regular seminars, café discussion groups and forums we hold at Ustinov:

Further opportunities to become involved in college life and beyond that encompass the theme of global citizenship are available through the following projects:
|Ustinov Volunteering||Race, Crime, and Justice||The Ustinovian Magazine|
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)
