NUSEX aims to unite past, present and prospective study abroad and exchange students with each other and the wider student body.
Welcome. Whether you are a foreign student at Nottingham, coming back from an exchange experience abroad, or preparing for an upcoming year abroad, or even just interested in meeting a great group of people from all over the world, it is brilliant to have you on board with us.
We, the committee, have all been abroad in 2010/11 and are returning to Nottingham in September. We understand the excite...ment and also worries that you might be feeling ahead of this year in Nottingham but we are all looking forward to a superb year ahead.
Britain is typically behind other European countries in the number of students studying abroad with Spain, France and Germany all sending more students abroad on the Erasmus programme. This, however, is changing with the government this week encouraging more and more students to study abroad and benefit from the special experiences that it brings (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-14306817). The University of Nottingham (UoN) has a huge number of international links through the Erasmus scheme, Universitas 21 and the UoN campuses in Malaysia and China. The newspaper, The Times, described our university as Britain’s “only truly global university”. This gives us a great opportunity to meet people from all over the world and have a lot of fun through NUSEX.
We are currently working on lots of things in preparation for the beginning of the year. We’re arranging trips, preparing a lot of helpful information for you and planning organised fun all over Nottingham.
This page and the group will have slightly different roles but please join both. Lots of information will be published on here in the coming weeks but if you have any questions please ask on here and we will do our best to answer them!
If you know of anyone else coming to Nottingham from abroad this year please suggest this page.
We look forward to meeting you very soon and keep checking this group in the next few weeks for more info.
Love from the NUSEX Committee
