Come join us!

Throughout the semesters, the International Student Advisory Service host a weekly catch-up for international students called 'Coffee & Chat' which takes place on each campus.

All international students, faculty, and staff are welcome to join us to participate in a relaxed and informal get together to socialise and support one another. There will also be a range of guest speakers and organised activities throughout the year.

There is no need to register in advance; unless we're running a special activity, just turn up at the time and location listed below for your campus and we'll bring the coffee, tea and snacks. Come join in some great conversation with our friends from around the world!

Please note: Coffee & Chat sessions do not run during the summer holiday period, however, we will be running a number of events in the summer across all campuses - please select your campus below for more information.

It is important to note that spaces are limited for our summer events and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please make sure that you select the campus that suits you best, as you will not be able to join the event if you do not have the correct ticket. Any paid events are non-refundable.

In order to provide a welcoming environment for our students, we will not allow unauthorised solicitation, recruiting, or marketing during this time.

Student groups or societies who would like to promote their upcoming events, recruit for their group, or help with a weekly catch-up can email the team at isas@ulster.ac.uk.
