Step into the shoes of international students with "Far From Home," an empathy-building board game crafted for university staff. In this unique experience, you'll embark on an "Empathy Expedition" to bridge the gap between different cultures and help international students feel more at home.

"Far From Home" is more than just a game; it's an opportunity to explore the diverse challenges international students face. Roll the dice, draw event cards, and immerse yourself in the daily trials and triumphs of students from around the world. Through role play and articulate discussions, you'll navigate language barriers, cultural misunderstandings, and the pangs of homesickness.

This game isn't about winning; it's about fostering deeper connections, understanding, and support. By playing "Far From Home," you'll develop a deeper understanding of the diverse backgrounds and perspectives of international students. This game provides a safe space for open conversations and empowers university staff to offer better support and guidance. Let's embark on this quest together, promoting a more inclusive and compassionate university environment.​
