What is UKCISA Fest?
UKCISA Fest is a week-long event series for international students studying at UK institutions, to celebrate International Students Day and International Education Week. Taking place from 16 - 20 November 2020, each day will focus on different themes and topics and explore international student experiences at every stage of their journey.
What do I need to pay for?
Absolutely nothing! We want to ensure UKCISA Fest is accessible for all international students, and we will not ask you to pay any fees.
UKCISA also operates a free and confidential advice line for international students and our members - find out more here.
I do not have any policy knowledge; can I still attend UKCISA Fest?
Of course! We welcome all of the UK’s international students to join UKCISA Fest. There are many informative sessions which provide useful tips and advice to help you navigate student life, such as: support services available if things go wrong, and looking after your mental wellbeing.
We also invite you to join the discussions to inform policy and practice through your lived experience on topics such as: immigration policy and graduate employability.
