Intercultural Development and Support
Life at UCD Smurfit School is a period of intellectual and intercultural stimulation, self-exploration and transformation in an inclusive multicultural environment. Valuing diversity in education, we offer dedicated intercultural support for all our students.
Our Intercultural Development and Support Officer, Dr. Linda Yang, offers intercultural support to both Irish and International students on a range of issues, including academic and sociocultural transition and integration, adapting to multicultural classes, multicultural groupwork, cross-cultural communication, cross-cultural friendship and the development of intercultural competence.
To help students maximize their learning in a diverse environment, Linda delivers lectures and workshops, and offers one-on-one individual and group consultations.
Dr. Yang has a Ph.D. degree in Intercultural Studies from Durham University, U.K. She is an experienced researcher and trainer in intercultural studies and has more than 15 years of teaching and training experience in Ireland, U.K. and China.
