About this university
Nearly 150 countries are represented among the student body at the university and around two thirds of all students are from outside the UK. This means there are various sources of help and assistance on hand for international students including help with immigration and visas issues as well as English language courses. Most of this comes through the International Student Immigration Service who offer help before a student arrives, during their time at the university and also assistance after finishing their studies. They also operate the exchange programs, the Erasmus program and the Sciences Po undergraduate programs. At the heart of student life is the Student Union, a member of the National Union of Students and the University of London Union. It is often regarded as the most politically active in the UK, dating back to its activity in the 1960s. It operates out of a purpose built facility on the Aldwych campus. It is responsible for the organisation and undertaking of entertainment events and societies as well as student welfare issues. There are over 200 societies, 40 sports clubs and a busy media group within the university.
