Talks in English is a series of monthly talks given in English and based on different themes. Talks are delivered by our teachers as well as external speakers. Information on upcoming sessions is available on our website and our social networks. Talks are open and free for all students as well as members of the public (subject to seat availability).

Refreshments are served after each talk to give participants a chance to practise their English during informal networking.
