International Friends

Are you someone who would love to get involved in the University of Lincoln's international community, promote cultural exchanges and make life-long friends?

 

What are International Friends?


International Friends are a group of student volunteers who work at the very heart of the Students' Union, helping our 1,200 international students integrate into the University of Lincoln and Lincoln life. 

Here at Lincoln Students' Union, we want to ensure international students feel at home. That's where you come in! Throughout the year, International Friends help international students to get involved with all the fantastic things we have going on at the Students' Union. From helping international students settle in during Welcome Week to helping the Vice President International, promote international parties and trips to taking part in campaigns, sports and societies, and more. No two days are the same!

International Friends also work closely with the International Students' Association (ISA) to facilitate weekly drop-ins and promote and support all ISA events. If necessary, they also support international students, signposting the Advice Centre services. 

 

Why should I become an International Friend?


Firstly, it's incredibly fun!

Secondly, by being an International Friend you will gain loads of employability skills to boost your CV and further your personal development. 

So, why not build up that CV whilst learning about new cultures and sharing yours?
