International Students

This is your one-stop place to access resources, come together, connect with other international students, and receive any support you may need to enhance your University experience. This community is for all students who self-define as having an international background, whether that means you have come to the UK to study or have lived in two or more cultural environments. This includes students from both within and, outside the European Union (EU).

What would you like to achieve in your role this year?

I aim to organize extra-curricular activities such as field trips, dinners, etc., that will enhance students’ experience, welfare and network. I hope to build a strong and positive network of international and local students as a community lead.
