Bristol International Student Centre (BISC) works with overseas students in Bristol’s Universities and Colleges. The most significant period of the year for BISC is the Welcome period from September to October when new students are arriving in Bristol. During this period, we have the opportunity to help provide meals, transport and temporary accommodation to international students who have newly arrived in the city. BISC provides ongoing friendship and help to international students throughout the academic year, including meals, events, trips, link families. Students also have the opportunity to participate in the Alpha course in the Spring.
