Trips around the UK
The International Society offer trips to some of the most beautiful and interesting locations around England, Scotland and Wales. There are day trips almost every weekend throughout the year including the summer and there are also weekend trips to historic Edinburgh and Roman Bath, including the ancient and famous Stonehenge.
Our members come together every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for tea, board games and a catch up. It’s a great way to meet new friends from different countries and to relax over a cup of tea.
The International Society hold cultural events throughout term time. Our wonderful volunteers will teach you about all about their country and culture, provide you with several courses of home-cooked traditional food, as well as entertaining you with traditional stories, dances and games.
One Love School Projects
The International Society organises various school projects for you to get involved in. The RocketWorld, Bee Hippy Happy and Earth Asylum projects will take you out to local schools so you can share your culture with the children. The projects feature the EarthBall: a giant inflatable Earth with NASA satellite imagery and volunteers from over 10 different countries.
International 16 is a diverse group of 16 students from 16 different countries. The group provides the inspiration and creativity for cultural evenings promoting international peace and friendship, celebrating cultural diversity and connecting with people around the world.
