Autumn Events

Updated: Oct 8, 2019

We have lots of events and activities on to welcome International Freshers as well as host the friends we've made over the year who are staying on. Scroll on to hear about a few of the things we're doing in the next month!

Our biggest event of the year is a bit party for all new and returning international students on the Monday after Freshers Week. Come and find out about what we do, meet other students and our amazing volunteers from all over Guildford and the world! Plus there is free food and music! No need to book, just turn up at Hillside Restaurant at 7pm on the 7th of October.
