A bit of upbeat news about international students for a change!
Please could you circulate to colleagues as it will help to generate interest in HOST UK visits. HOST UK is recruiting more volunteers who would be interested in hosting an international student for a day visit or for a weekend or even over the Easter weekend and, as you will see from the article, hosting a student is a very rewarding experience. If you would be interested in becoming a host, there is information at http://www.hostuk.org.uk/hosting.html
Students may also be interested in the article – reading about the positive experiences of other international students in the news gives a boost. Students who want to sign up just have to go to the website at http://www.hostuk.org.uk/host-visits.html to sign up. The University of Manchester contributes to the admin fee for the first visit made by a student.
