The International Students‘ Forum is a space for all international students (including European students) to have their voices heard by the Aberdeen University Students’ Association (AUSA) and the University of Aberdeen. It is also an opportunity to get to know other international students in Aberdeen, find out what International Societies we have here at AUSA, attend social events, or start campaigns relevant to International Students. You can see the full remit of the Forum below.
The 2020-2021 Committee is made up of:
University of Aberdeen is one of the most international Universities in the UK with over 130 nationalities. You can find a list of all the current national societies – and if there is one you can’t find you could be the one to start it yourself! Here is where you can find information on how to start a society.
There is also the Erasmus Student Network Aberdeen that you can join!
One of the campaigns the Forum has been involved with is the 'Post Study Work Visa Now' priority campaign, passed by Student Council in January 2019. The campaign aimed to fight for international students' fair opportunity to gain employment rights, increase awareness about post-study work options and ensure that Aberdeen University is doing its best to support international students. The campaign aims to also support international students with increasing concerns due to Brexit. Read the full policy here. Here is where you can find the most current update on this (at the time of posting this, 08/06/2020)
The Forum is part of the Equity Forum together with the other Section Forums and Liberation Forums. Where relevant, members will also represent international students’ interest to the University in University meetings.
