The international cohort at BGU has been increasing in recent years, and the university was delighted to host a welcome meal for international and Erasmus students.

Those that attended had the opportunity to meet international students from a range of courses, sample some British culinary classics and share their experiences of travelling to BGU to study.

This year BGU welcomes 65 international students from 19 countries including - for the first time - students from Cameroon, Mexico, Russia, Singapore, and Thailand. The university decided to hold a typically British fish and chips dinner with sticky toffee pudding for dessert.

Vice Chancellor Reverend Canon Professor Peter Neil was on hand to offer a few words to the growing cohort to welcome them to the university.

Wayne Dyble, International Manager, said: “Global Engagement is at the heart of successful modern universities, enriching teaching, and research, transforming student experience, diversifying, and expanding horizons to create more inclusive futures."

"Growing our international cohort is one of our goals as a university, and I’m delighted to see so many students accept the invitation and join us for a fish and chips dinner, and hope that this becomes a long-standing tradition here at BGU.”

“We have students from across the world who have chosen to travel to study here at BGU, and we wanted to give them a warm welcome to Lincoln and help them connect to other international students across other courses who they may not have the opportunity to socialise with.”
