International Family Network

The International Student Support staff would like to welcome those students with families and their family members. We aim to provide support to help with the transition into UK life. Moving to an unfamiliar country and trying to balance study commitments while raising a family can be an isolating and difficult experience. If you’re an international student parent in this position, the good news is that you’re not alone!

We have created the International Family Network in order to bring international families together in a welcoming and informal environment. Our meet-ups allow you to socialise and share experiences/tips with others who may be going through many of the same situations as you.


We would like to invite Imperial Families to take part in our new annual children's Art Competition and Exhibition .   Children are invited to submit a piece of art work in any medium ( either 2D or 3D ) on the theme of International Friendship.   All entries will be part of the International Family Network 2018 Calendar and there will also be prizes awarded.   Please submit art work to the International Support Office 301 Sherfield Building.  Please contact Shelagh Markey for further details

Join the International Family Network mailing list and Facebook group to receive notifications of upcoming events.
