Professor Maurits, rector at LSBF, yesterday wrote an opinion article for the Huffington Post about student diversity in the UK.

He argues that a multicultural classroom enhances the quality of the learning experience as well as career prospects, networking, etc. He points to a piece of research at Harvard and concluded that “with the right leadership multi-cultural teams have the ability to outperform mono-cultural teams.”

Have you had the opportunity to study in a multicultural university? If so, what are your thoughts on it?

In my subject, graphic design, I think that the only reason that multiculturalism would affect the quality of learning is through their influences in their work. It would be cool to see their reasoning for their designs, but I'm not sure that it would affect my learning experience with or without.

During my first year I took an elective module, this looked at different cultures on a local and global level. It was great to have a diverse cohort as during presentations you got to learn about different cultures and backgrounds. For an assessment, we had to present about a country - I looked at LGBT rights and culture in Russia - others looked at religion in x country. was a great experience and is what makes university great.
