International Students Society
Enjoy the Multicultural Experience!
Welcome to the International Students Society (ISS), the ultimate destination for a multicultural experience at UEA! With students from over 100 countries, we strive to promote cultural exchange and acceptance among the diverse student population at UEA.
Whether you're an international student looking to connect with others or a home student interested in exploring different cultures, ISS is the perfect place for you!
Join us for an enjoyable multicultural experience!
Mission and Vision
Our mission is to provide a welcoming and inclusive community for all international and home students to come together and learn about different cultures.
Our vision is to create a diverse and vibrant community where all students feel connected and valued.
Events and Socials
We aim to hold one event and one social each month.
The events are larger and themed for the month (such as Valentine's Day speed dating or a Halloween party).
The socials are being smaller and more relaxed (such as a chat over tea or a game night).
But that's not all, we also collaborate with other cultural societies to provide opportunities for cultural exchange and learning. Follow us on Instagram or check this Students Union website to see upcoming events.
Benefits of membership include:
- exclusive events
- discounts on tickets
- emails on upcoming events and opportunities
- opportunity to join our committee and make a difference in the society
Plus, you'll have the chance to make new friends from all over the world and learn about different cultures. And the best part? Membership is only £3 for the whole academic year! That's less than a bottle of beer at the SU Bar!
Do I need to be an international student to join events/membership?
Not at all! We're open to all students at UEA who are interested in enjoying a multicultural experience and learning about different cultures. Both international and home students are welcome to join our society and participate in our events and activities.
Where can I find the society's events?
You can find the events on this Student Union website and on our Instagram page. We also send emails to our members with information about upcoming events and activities.
How often do you do events?
We aim to hold one event and one social each month. These events and socials can range in size and theme, with events being larger and themed for the month (such as Valentine's Day speed dating or a Halloween party) and socials being smaller and more relaxed (such as a chat over tea or a movie night). However, the number and frequency of events and socials may vary depending on various factors, as we are all students ourselves and have other commitments.
