VP International

SOUTHEND CAMPUS ENGAGEMENT

As the VP International, my responsibilities include taking care of international students across all three campuses: Colchester, Southend and Loughton. On the 10th of August, I visited Southend campus with the VP Southend and VP Welfare to learn more of the structure of the Southend Campus and Southend SU staff. We are currently planning international events in Southend – drop us an email with any suggestions!

FINANCIAL LITERACY TALK FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

Moving abroad may be daunting; especially if it’s the first time you’re living away from family. As part of my manifesto, I am currently planning a financial literacy talk for international students to help with day-to-day budgeting, banking transactions and working or interning part-time in the UK. It’s tentatively planned on the second and fourth week of October – if you’re interested to attend, do contact me for further details.

MID-AUTUMN MOON FESTIVAL AND DIWALLI CELEBRATIONS

Following the success of last year’s events, I am supporting the Students’ Union to host our annual Mid-Autumn Moon Festival on the 4th of October and Diwalli Celebration on the 19th of November! We’ll be hosting a photobooth, refreshments and performances in the Squares to celebrate these auspicious days. Look out for the promotional posters coming out soon!
