WHAT DID YOU STUDY?
Law (LLB) Hons.
WHAT IS THE MAIN FUNCTION OF YOUR ROLE?
I am the International Students’ Officer (ISO) and this means that I try to cater for the needs of the international student body on campus (basically anyone who had to travel from outside the UK to study).
I am a Nigerian and I first started my journey at Newcastle University from INTO, where I took a foundation course in Humanities and Social Sciences. While at INTO, I felt a bit overwhelmed being surrounded by multiple people from various cultures but I also love how amazing it was to be able to experience them (the cultures). That’s why I ran for the position of the ISO to help foster better relationships between the international student body.
- Promote diversity on campus through awareness events as well as campaigns
- Ensure that the interests of international students are adequately represented
- Work alongside INTO to promote opportunities and support international students in their integration into Newcastle University
