International Students Connect

Just Connect for International Students in the UK

The events below are chosen with international students in mind. We won't be listing popular entertainment. That's easy to do, and you know what you like. But we'll be posting items of academic or cultural interest that could easily escape the attention of busy students.
For some seriously interesting public lectures go to our 'Brain up in the UK' page.
Feel free to share your own 'What's on' ideas on our Facebook page.
We don't supply links: you know how to search online.

2015 marks the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. This document was signed by King John under pressure from his barons to reform customs and practices that made life difficult for many of his subjects. Magna Carta is regarded as an important step towards holding rulers to account for their policies and actions. Many of its principles were later written into the constitutions of newly independent states around the world.
There will be numerous events and lectures around the UK and in other countries in 2015. Check this website for events near you. We will also send you alerts as key dates approach.
