The International Student Society provides students with the chance to meet other international students and become open-minded individuals towards different cultures. The society offers a number of events all year round celebrating international traditions from all over the world as well as social events to get to know people better. Being in a diverse international community at the University of Chester, gives students the opportunity to have a home away from home and expose students to a unique university experience amongst other international students.
The society gives great support in terms creating a sense of community and giving support to situations, which some international students may face, such as homesickness. The aim for the society is to encourage more international and cultural events including a variety of trips within the UK and to grow our international community. We have events from all over the world including plans for Oktoberfest to start off the year, Christmas celebrations, Diwali, Chinese New Year and potential trips all year round! It’s a great opportunity to meet people, build friendships, and have a home away from home with people from the same country!
In the 2017/2018 we were able to more than double the membership target with people from all over the world as well as a handful of native British students! Even if you’re not international to the UK, you are still considered international to most of the people in the society. So Brits are more than welcome!
The International Student Society is the perfect place to meet people from all over the world and build friendships that last a lifetime.
