London is one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse cities in the world: roughly 30% of Londoners were born outside the UK and at least 300 languages are spoken in the Greater London area.
Here at Tufts in London we cannot presume to know exactly how each of you identifies or what your individual experience of studying abroad will be. What we can do is listen, support, try to highlight any issues that might arise, and help you navigate problems in the context of British culture. Between us we have lots of experience of the UK and of advising students studying here, but we think of this as a conversation between us and you rather than a one-way information stream: if there’s something you need help or advice with – or just want to tell us -- we’re all ears.
Tufts Global Education’s DEIJ webpage has lots of useful information about how your identity might affect your study abroad experience.
Each of our UK Universities has a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion framework and a section of their website dedicated to DEI. It’s a good place to start if you’re looking for support, information, affinity groups, and activities for when you arrive in London.
