INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS' OFFICER
CHINYERE EMEKA

 

 

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).

ABOUT ME

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
