UCLU for international students
UCLU’s International Students’ Officer represents all EU and
International students in UCL and UCLU committees to ensure that your needs are being met. They are an international student themselves and therefore aware of the challenges that you may face in your first year here.
UCLU has an International Students’ Forum, which provides social events and a chance for you to meet each other.
