We felt that these really summed up what it’s like to study in the UK and how the work of UKCISA and our members help to transform the lives of international students. Prizes will be with the winners shortly and the photos will be showcased on our website in the new year.

Throughout 2018 we’ll be celebrating international students by showcasing our top 50 photos. So if you haven’t been selected as a winner you may still spot your photo on our website next year!
