What is International Students' Council (I.S.C.)?

I.S.C. provides International Students (and students of non-UK European Union origin) an elected representative body that listens to their concerns and acts on their behalf to raise issues to the University and the Students' Guild.

One of their key objectives is to raise awareness of the cultural diversity of the international student body, and to assist with helping students bring their cultures to life here in Exeter.

I.S.C. is led by the Deputy-Vice President (DVP) International.
