Book or drop-in for an open chat with a member of our Peer Support Team about wellbeing, life as an international student or anything else you want to talk about.
Life as an international student can sometimes be challenging and busy, sometimes it helps to speak to someone who has been through the same things as you.
Our friendly International Student Peer Support team are current international students who can lend a supportive ear.
