for international students in Southampton and Winchester

Welcome to Southampton & Winchester

Friends International is here to help you enjoy your time in England to the full.

Studying in another country can be great fun and very rewarding. But it can also sometimes bring challenges; a new language, a different culture, and getting to know new people. Friends International wants to welcome you, and to give you opportunities to meet local people, make friends and learn about British culture, customs and beliefs.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

In these difficult times, our top priority is to ensure the welfare of our staff, trainees, volunteers and of course, the hundreds of international students we meet every week.

We will continue supporting international students in all the ways we can, while also adhering to government guidelines.

We have therefore had to cancel all our events which involved meeting in person, but we are seeking to offer as much as we can online.  See our events page for more details.
