International Students' Club

Established 1986 at the instigation of St. George's Church, Leeds to provide a welcome for international students of any faith. Now jointly run by members of churches in Leeds in cooperation with the University of Leeds Chaplancy. It meets every Wednesday in the Emmanuel Centre (upstairs in the Wilson Room). The Emmanuel centre is in the former Emmanuel Church building, left of the main road into Leeds University, near the road entrance (just by the Parkinson building).

If you want to find out more about life in the UK, or are looking for friendship or to practise your English, then the club is the place for you!
