Greetings to all international students at the University of Birmingham!
Have you heard about the International Students’ Association?
When you are an international student, you are automatically a member of this association. It is there to represent you and help you get your voice heard.
We would like to hear your ideas about what you would like the Association to be this year and how you can help take it there! Come along to the first meeting of the ISA where you will be able to discuss what you think your Association should do for you and how it should do so.
It will also be a good occasion to meet new people, and expand your friends’ network!
The meeting is scheduled for 4-6 pm on Tuesday 18th October 2011 in Rosa Parks, in the Guild of Students.
See you there!
