for the 2018 WELCOME: 4th – 28th September 2018
In September, BISC (Bristol International Student Centre) runs a WELCOME programme to meet and greet new International Students arriving in our city. Find out more what happens here during the Welcome period.
We need YOUR HELP to make this happen! Help is needed to:
1. drive students around (your car or our people-carrier)
2. cook/serve welcome meals (as a group or individual)
3. provide temporary overnight accommodation
4. man a welcome desk
BISC provides alot of support for international students who come to Bristol and as a church we have been involved in many ways including running two BISC events ('Taste of the UK' in October and the 'Pancake Party' in February). Volunteers are involved all year around and we encourage individuals and families to get involved in the local link scheme.
Each term BISC arranges a programme of events and activities for international students in Bristol to enjoy. It is important to take a break from studies to explore the country that you are studying in and BISC provides the perfect opportunity to explore historic cities and places of interest, as well as promoting cross cultural understanding and exchange through weekly events and cultural evenings.
