What is iCUSU?

iCUSU is the umbrella body for all international societies and students in Cambridge University. We aim to serve as a hub for all things international happening in Cambridge, whilst looking out for the needs of internationals.

Here is a summary of our core purposes, summarised from our constitutional mandate:

1. Well-being of International Student, 2. Platform for Everyone to Connect, and 3. Access for Under-privileged Groups Abroad

Relationship with CUSU

iCUSU is an an "autonomous campaign" of CUSU (CU Students' Union), functionally independent and self-run. The iCUSU Chair is accountable for the exercise of his or her vote in the CUSU Council.

What we do?

We organized campaign and welfare activities to assist us in achieving the goals above. The nature of activities depends heavily on the request and interest of our stakeholders.

Campaign

Campaign

In recent years, we have been working very closely with colleges to improve the benefits of international students. For instance, we urged some colleges to provide vacation storage for international students for free; this allows international students to store their belongings in college storage room out-of-term, so that students will not have to worry about finding external storage facilities, or bringing back all their belongings. Other issues that we worked on include the vacation residence of international students, and supporting access campaign all around the world.

If you have any concern, and would like us to assist you, please email us!











Events

In previous years, we organized International Freshers' Week (IFW), World Food Festival (WFF), Sports League, International Talent Shows... just to name a few. The events focused on supporting the incoming freshers by creating opportunities to make new friends, and integrating different international student groups.

This year, we are very excited to announce that the International Freshers' Week will be held in between 27/09/2016 to 30/09/2016! You can find more details here.

Last but not least, don't forget to follow us on Facebook for more updates!
