The Sheffield Hallam GoGlobal Challenge 2017/18

The GoGlobal Challenge recognises your hard work in developing your intercultural competencies and global outlook while studying at Sheffield Hallam University.

Completing the GoGlobal Challenge will help you develop skills and evidence that

  • you are able to engage with different values systems wherever you encounter them
  • you can communicate effectively across cultures, and in different cultural contexts
  • you have understanding of how your actions and those of others can have global implications

In order to complete the GoGlobal Challenge, you have to:


Participate in a Cultural awareness workshop:


At least one of the other GoGlobal Challenge Workshops advertised in UniHub.


Attend at least two GoGlobal Challenge lectures delivered by Sheffield Hallam's leading academics and partners. Lectures will be announced in UniHub.


Complete a period of international exchange:


Volunteer in a multicultural community project in Sheffield or on campus


Complete and submit a reflective journal in which you reflect on the global skills and knowledge you feel you have developed and how they will support your future ambitions, whether personally, professionally or for the good of society. You will receive detailed guidance about this step once you register for participation in the GoGlobal Challenge.
