Hiya everyone, I am Sissi, your International Students’ Officer. My job is to represent and support our international student population, and work to facilitate the integration of home and international students. My office is on level 4 of the Students’ Union and you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to chat, or have any ideas that could help improve the life of international students, feel free to talk to me in person, I hold drop-in sessions every Tuesday during term from 4pm to 5pm.
Welcome to Sheffield!
You should be incredibly proud for taking the massive step of moving into a new environment, choosing to study abroad, and starting the most amazing experience of your life. I finished my masters degree last year, so I understand better than anyone what it is like to be an international student here. Our University and our Students’ Union is a diverse community, which is full of many cultures, nationalities and religions. We represent many different voices, demands and groups. We care about giving everyone the best possible university experience.
No matter where you are from or what you are going to achieve over the following years, the most important thing is enjoying your time in Sheffield. Make incredible friends who come from other countries, explore this amazing city and broaden your horizons by trying new things. Just remember, the Students’ Union is here to help, support and enhance your time here. I promise you it will be a life-changing experience!
Enjoy your time in Sheffield and I am so excited to work for you and make friends with you all :)
