If you are an international student studying in Aberdeen, then Friends International Aberdeen is for you!

Look out for our Welcome Meals for international students in September during Freshers' Week.

We are a network of local volunteers who run events, trips, courses and hospitality all year round for international students in Aberdeen:

- Every Monday, a group of international ladies come and meet each other at CAMEO, and children come too!

- Every Tuesday night there is a Bible Study for those of all faiths and none to see what the Bible says and practice English in discussion groups

- Cafes are on regularly in Aberdeen, on the last Thursday of every month

- Our hosting project is called 'Friendship Link', a way to make friends with a local family. Two or three students are usually linked with each family or individual and may be invited for a meal and an outing about two or three times in an academic year.

Friends International is a registered Christian charity. Our staff and coordinators are all Christians who love welcoming international students to the UK. The events we promote are for all international students, regardless of nationality or religious belief. Some of our events include opportunities to discover what Christians believe, and it's always clear in our publicity which events these are. We would love to see you at any of our events. Please check our Facebook page to discover what's on.

Would you like to be invited into the home of one of our host families?

Friends International's hospitality scheme has been running for more than 20 years and for many international students, this has been the highlight of their stay in the UK.

Simply register your details and we will arrange for one of our hosts to contact you. You will then be able to arrange a suitable time with your host to go to their home for a meal and a chance to relax and socialise. If you want to bring up to 2 friends with you, just tell us their names when you register, and ask them to register too.

If you have any questions about this scheme, please don't hesitate to contact us.
