The international community in Sidney is both inclusive and active. Our International Students Officer organises events like formal swaps and small socials with food so you always have the opportunity to meet other internationals both from Sidney and other Colleges. Many of them happen in International Freshers’ week, just before regular Freshers’ week so you have the opportunity to meet fellow international students, both in Sidney and in other Colleges, settle in, get over jet lag, and even go on nights out. Sidney knows how difficult it is to move into a new country and have to deal with it alone - so they are always there to help you resolve any problems you may have. From opening a bank account to finding the avocados in Sainsbury’s they are always there to guide you and make your life in England much easier.
Sidney offers all international students free storage over the holidays as well as a continuous lease on your room, in case you want to stay in college during the holidays. The Sidney community is really welcoming and you’ll have plenty of support throughout your degree to make sure you’re settling in nicely!
