Argus, Haruka

International Officers

Hi, we are Haruka and Argus and we are your International Officers for 2021/2022

Starting October, we will both be second year medics. Adapting to a new environment at a university in a new country can be daunting, and as international students who joined St George’s during the pandemic, we have experienced that first-hand. That’s why we want to provide as much support as possible for the international students at George’s.

Our main goals are:

  • Improving ISS’s International Buddy System for better engagement

  • More events with ISS during Freshers' week and other regular events throughout the year

  • International student webinar for freshers before arrival

  • SU Bar events and gatherings

  • Trips around the UK, including theme parks and historical sites

  • Connecting international students with students at other London universities

  • We also want to look into organising events that include both the local and international students to integrate the communities for a stronger student body

We can’t wait to meet you all (hopefully in person), and if you have any questions/ideas, please feel free to email us: internat@sgul.ac.uk
