Students of the International Campus will be treated to a high table dinner next month; a tradition first held at prestigious universities such as Oxford and Cambridge.

During the dinner series, students will have the opportunity to listen to international guest speakers who will offer their expertise in their subject area. Students will also be able to ask questions and discuss the topic with their peers and tutors.
