At University College Lillebaelt we work to improve the social integration of our international exchange students.
The International Student Network at University College Lillebaelt works in the interest of our international exchange students.
The international student network works to improve the social and practical integration of international students through social and cultural activities which take place during the autumn and spring semesters at UCL.
The main focus of the network is current exchange students who might find it difficult to move to another country far away from family and friends. They might feel alone in their new environments and therefore need to find new friends in a hurry.
The international student network offers help in both the social and practical integration process. This is mainly done through activities such as trips to various places within the country, movie nights, and international food fests, sport activities and last, but not least, parties.
The activities are carried out by Danish students who work voluntarily on helping and supporting our international exchange students.
By bringing international exchange students together with Danish students at UCL we aim to bridge the gap between cultural boundaries, but also to let our students gain valuable knowledge, new perspectives, and important networking opportunities for their future careers.
