    Come and meet other international students at our social events. Join us for a pizza and a quiz, for fun and games, or on one of our day or weekend tourist trips to different destinations and attractions around the UK.

    We also encourage students to experience real British culture spending one day or a weekend with a British host family. Full details are available on the social pages.

    Global Buddies

    If you want to make British and International friends in a relaxed and multicultural atmosphere, we run the Global Buddies Mentor Scheme, you are welcome to join in! We match current UK students with new international students so each can learn from each other.

    The UK student will be able to help the international students settle into life in Oxford, show them the best places in town and in return the international students will bring the cultures of the world to Oxford. Full details are available on the Global Buddies page
