for international students in Birmingham

Open Home in Edgbaston

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. There is the option to join them from 6.00 – 6.45pm for supper first, but she needs to know in advance please (students need to please sign up for supper by the previous Friday, otherwise Glenys might have to ask you to come to the next event), if you plan to do this.

Click on the “Get Directions” tab above to see exactly where to come. But make sure you contact Glenys first so that she knows how many are coming:
