This Quality Assurance Agency Scotland–funded mini project focused on the Resilient Learning Communities Enhancement Theme. We sought to identify enhancement to support building of resilient learning communities for International Postgraduate Taught students (IPGT) who we identified to have particular needs having moved country (often with families) and studied remotely during the pandemic. This cohort also paid international fees to study at a time when opportunities for paid work significantly decreased. We used LEGO®SERIOUS PLAY®(LSP) to support story sharing amongst eight IPGT students of different African and Asian nationalities over three face to face sessions studying Applied Sciences or Business at Edinburgh Napier University.
