for international students in Birmingham

Open Home in Edgbaston

* All our usual events are suspended at this time but we are still running activities. Click here for more details *

Are you an international student? Do you live on the Vale, at BCU’s City South (Edgbaston) campus or near Five Ways? Would you like to meet British people and other international students in a local home?

If so, Glenys Harriott would love to welcome you to her home on alternate Mondays from 7.00pm to 9.15pm. She and her team of volunteers invite you to take part in an informal evening with an interesting theme.

You can also join Glenys and others for evening meal first from 6.00 – 6.45pm, but she needs to know in advance please. Students need to please email Glenys by the previous Friday if you want to come to the meal. Email:

If you are too late to do this, you can still come at 7pm without telling Glenys in advance.
