INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS' OFFICER: FATIMA ROSE UNICA

Fatima Rose Unica - International Students' Officer

Hi! Ciao! Hola! Salut! I am Fatima Rose Unica and I am you International Students' Officer for the Student Guild 2018/2019. I am studying a BA (Hons) degree in International Tourism Business Management. As this will be my last year in UCB I took the opportunity to get involved more in the student life by joining the Guild and meet new people from different cultures which I did for the past two years.

As your International Students' Officer, I will support and represent EU and Overseas students throughout the year and I will take into consideration any issues within the university and social context. I will volunteer alongside the International Student Office in order to re-launch the ISC (International Student Community), to promote the student exchange program as well as to increase the number of social and cultural events.

My student life in UCB was not hard at all, however, I saw that many EU and Overseas students felt homesick and lost, thus it was easier for them to stick together with their fellow countrymen. Studying in the UK is a great opportunity to meet new people from all over the world. So, let's make our circle of friends more international and to expand our network for the future.

 

You will probably see me around Summer Row or McIntyre House, so please don't hesitate to say hi and have a friendly chat! You can also email me at guild.international@ucb.ac.uk in case you have any concerns or a good idea for some cultural events.
