International Students Officer: 

Hi I’m the international officer at NUA! While the number of international students at NUA is small, our impact is not!

As a student officer, I sit on the Students’ Union Steering Committee and work alongside the SU President to ensure the interests, ideas and feedback of International Students are heard and acted on. Here are some of the things you can contact me about:  

  • Campaigns, projects or initiatives – if you have an idea, we want to hear it! 

  • Feedback, complaints or concerns relating to your experience of studying at NUA or living in Norwich. 

  • Representation of international students at SU, University and National level.
