International Student Wellbeing Group

Advice and Counselling is starting a new International Student Wellbeing group this June to help those students who are settling into student life at Queen Mary. This is an opportunity for you to learn from others from other countries who have also moved to London for their studies.


What is the International Students Support Group? 

With students from over 170 nationalities at our university, we want to acknowledge the unique experience international students might face when transitioning to university. We want to foster an environment where students can feel supported in making Queen Mary their new home.  

The International Students Support Group offers you the opportunity to share your experiences and learn from others who like you have moved to London to study at Queen Mary. Each session will be led by our Student Wellbeing Advisers (from the Advice and Counselling Service) and cover a range of topics from building resilience to forming new relationships and transitions.  

This group will bring together people from different cultures, backgrounds and perspectives and we will be promoting inclusivity and acceptance of differences. Come be a part of this journey!  

Is this group for you? 

For many students, the transition to university can mean new challenges and if you are an International Student, you might be adjusting to a new language, culture and a way of life. If you are an International Student who is finding this transition difficult, want to meet new people or want to learn new strategies about how to cope with life at Queen Mary then this group is for you!  

You must be able to attend all four sessions in person as non-attendance will impact on the rest of the group members. Dates: 7 June, 14 June , 21 June, 28 June; 3-4pm on campus. 

How do I join the group? 

Complete this online form and provide some basic information about yourself. You will then be contacted and invited to have a quick call with one of our Student Wellbeing Advisers.
