Dr Fannie Yeung, Senior Lecturer in Marketing and Director of Student Experience at Hull University Business School, said: “The RICS team loved the enthusiasm of our international students and everyone had a good time learning and discussing such an important issue.
“Events like these bring great benefits for our students in terms of future opportunities, enabling them to making connections with businesses and they really show how important international relations are too. Students are also able to learn about postgraduate options for them.”
Adedamola Adeniyi, who studied Logistics and Supply Chain Management, said: “The trip to RICS headquarter and interview on COP28 refreshed my memory on the reasons why nations come together to tackle climate change, and the importance of decarbonising the environment.”
In partnership with the University, the trip was organised by the Kexgill Group, which owns and operates student accommodation in the University Quarter in Hull, with a view to showing companies and organisations the value of international students to the UK and the importance of COP28.
Richard Stott, Managing Director for the Kexgill Group, said: “It’s always a pleasure to create opportunities like these for international students.
“Starting your studies in a new country can be daunting, but the contribution foreign students make to the life of the city is invaluable – both culturally and economically, so fostering these relationships with international students is really important to us.”
