Students with families
International Family Network
The International Student Support staff would like to welcome those students with families and their family members. We aim to provide support to help with the transition into UK life. Moving to an unfamiliar country and trying to balance study commitments while raising a family can be an isolating and challenging experience. If you’re an international student parent in this position, the good news is that you’re not alone!
We have created the International Family Network in order to bring international families together in a welcoming and informal environment. Our meet-ups allow you to socialise and share experiences/tips with others who may be going through many of the same situations as you.
Our recent trips and events have included: Legoland Windsor; The Tower of London; Kew Gardens; The Lion King Theatre Trip; Hampton Court Palace; Kensington Palace and also our annual Easter Egg Hunt !
