NUS has built a number of tried and tested training and workshop methods to facilitate discussion around faith and belief issues that may arise on campus. We offer training throughout the year on a number of topics including:

  • External speakers guidance
  • Engaging students of faith and belief
  • Conflict resilience
  • Faith and sexuality
  • I Will Lead the Way – Muslim women’s leadership

In addition to our training programme we also provide guidance and support to build or improve good campus relations:
