Hello everyone, I am Julia Yan, your 2019/2020 iCUSU Chair! I am a third year chemical engineer from Murray Edwards College. Having been studying in UK for 4 years since IB, I understand all the difficulties an international student might face and areas of improvement that definitely could be addressed. iCUSU is a hub for all international students, we are a student campaign which is a part of CUSU, ran by 13 committee members. Throughout my time serving as iCUSU Chair, I would like to establish a platform that brings all the internationals together, a platform that values cultural diversity and collaborations. More specifically, I aim to provide as much easily accessed information for internationals as possible by campaigning for urgent issues that concern the internationals welfare. The priorities for iCUSU include storage capacity, vacation rent, transparency of scholarship, and video interviews. We will also be organising large scale social events including the international freshers week, mini world cup, international food festival, and language exchange programme. This year, iCUSU is introducing the very first ambassador programme that reaches out and provides help for the perspective international students.
