What is the Cohort Building Toolkit?

A collection of activities and methods to help build meaningful relationships within your cohort; this toolkit is designed for university students and staff.

What does 'cohort' mean?

Cohort refers to a group of people that share a common characteristic. In this context, a cohort could mean your personal tutor group, club, society, project team, your course mates in the same year group, or even your entire course! As long as you are sharing an experience, a journey, a passion, or simply find yourself all in the same place , you can call yourself a cohort!
