Welcome Events for international students
Each year we aim to help international students settle into the institution and local community by hosting a range of dedicated welcome events. In addition we also put on special events designed to improve the student experience of overseas students. The next of these events is as follows:
International Students Forum
Featuring a presentation from Christina Yan Zhang – NUS International Students Officer
High Wycombe N2.04
If you wish to attend this event and listen to Christina talking about how international students can increase their employability please email email@example.com.
An International Student Society
Societies offer an opportunity to get together with a group of like minded individuals who share an interest or hobby. You could help to shape and develop the society through various committee positions, which, not only ensures the longevity of the society, but also looks good on your C.V. We currently have 32 societies, which include the Afro-Caribbean Society (ACS), Taekwondo Society, Tea Society and more! By starting a society, you could receive funding for trips, equipment, merchandise and the resources you need to help make your society a success. We are looking for a group of 10 students to start an International Society. If you are interested in this opportunity, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A range of Recreational Activities designed to cater for our diverse membership
The Students’ Union runs activities which are popular with our international students, such as language courses, fitness classes, theatre trips and cooking classes which are free to Bucks students as part of the Big Deal. For more information or to sign up please contact email@example.com.
A campaign to offer additional English Language support for international students led by our president Ash Coles
We know that irrespective of how good your English language skills are it can still be hard to understand all of the technical language used in an academic class. With this in mind our President, Ash Coles, has been working with the institution to try and get them to invest additional, dedicated, resources in the Learning Development Unit so that international students can get accessible support for developing their language skills.
