APPG on International Students launches supporter status

16 October 2017

Chaired by our President, Lord Bilimoria and Paul Blomfield MP for Sheffield Central, the APPG for international students works to highlight the impact and contribution international students make to the country.

The APPG has recently launched a supporter status for universities, schools, colleges and other organisations with an interest in international students.

Supporters can be organisations with a strong interest in international students, who support the aims and objectives of the APPG and wish to support future work done by the group. As membership of the APPG for International Students can only be held by MPs or Peers, Supporter status allows these organisations an opportunity to fully engage with the APPG through meetings, events, and briefings. 

Supporters will receive:

  • All APPG for International Students newsletters, reports and briefings
  • Invitations to APPG events (where appropriate and subject to room capacity)
  • Recognition of their Supporter status at APPG events and on the APPG website

Supporters that are charities will contribute £250 per organisation and those that are non-charities will contribute £350 per organisation. The funding from these supporter fees will go directly into APPG activities and to support the growth of what the APPG can offer to Members and Supporters.

If you’d like your institution, organisation or students’ union to become a supporter you can get in touch with the APPG secretariat at
