Latest Activity: #WeAreInternational


Our #weareinternational initiative has led to the development of a new social media campaign to help universities showcase the contribution international students make to the UK.

In the run up to the General Election, Universities UK, Education UK and NUS have teamed up to host a national social media campaign to celebrate international students and international alumni, providing a platform for them to share their stories with the rest of the public about why they chose to study in the UK.

The campaign will run throughout March using the hashtag #WeAreInternational.
Contributors can also download Twitter card templates to complete and upload as part of their tweets.
