A University of Chester student recently joined experts in the field of international education for an exciting networking event.

Franceska Shollo, who is from Albania attended the #WeAreInternational forum at Wolburn House in central London along with students from other institutions to discuss a variety of topics.

The event, which was held on Monday 18th November, was organised and hosted by the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA). The advisory board has been supporting international students for more than 50 years.

The forum gave students and experts the chance to discuss key subjects including cross-cultural experiences, arriving in the UK, post-graduation opportunities and visa issues.

Franceska, who studies MSc Marketing Management said the forum was a huge success:  

“The #WeAreInternational forum was a brilliant opportunity for students around the world to represent their University and voice opinions in regards to improving student experience in the UK.  The conference was very informative for myself and a great chance to build a professional network of contacts.”

After the forum, students, including Franceska were invited to an evening reception at the British Library.

“I did a lot of networking and made new friends at the evening event, I really enjoyed sharing ideas with other international students. I would like to thank the International Centre and UKCISA for making this experience possible. “

UKCISA has recently launched an exciting International Student Ambassador Programme encouraging those currently studying in the UK to become part of an influential network.
