18th April 2014

Dear all,

Greetings! We hope you have a very productive Easter break, because next week is the start of term! *yay*

*cough did I just mentally say ‘yay’? cough*

There are loads of announcements, namely the Oxbridge Games! We also have an Outreach volunteer form for interested participants to complete. The outreach form is mainly for registration of interest that will also facilitate the coordination of this summer’s Outreach in Malaysia.

On the side note, CUMaS is very proud to announce that we have won this year’s UKEC trailer competition! Your likes and Facebook spamming have made us 1000 pounds richer! *BIG YAY*

*cough YEP I SAID YAY cough*

Last but not the least, there is a cross-cultural management survey at the bottom of this newsletter. It would be great if you participate in it. 🙂

 4. Cross-Cultural Management Survey

A message to CUMaS members:


I am Young-Jin Hur, a postgraduate student from the London School of Economics (LSE). Currently my supervisor and I are running a project in the area of cross-cultural management. We aim to, for the first time in the field, compare bilingual/bicultural individuals from an extensive range of cultures in a single study. Given the current interest in multiculturalism and multilingualism in the UK, the results will provide huge insights into the field of cross- cultural management, psychology, and policy making. Understandably, our research requires a large number of bilingual/bicultural as well as monolingual/monocultural participants living in the UK. We would therefore like to ask for your benevolent support to take part in our survey (through the link above). Feel free to send me a mail to: Thank you very much.

Link to survey:

Kind regards,

Young-Jin Hur
