Salam my fellow SOASIANS! I’m Ahmed, your International Students Officer for 2018-19. My main aim is to help international students with issues such as opening a bank account, getting a student oyster card, tax exemption letter etc. I wish to make things easier for international students,as well as improving communication between international students and the SOAS community. To achieve this, I plan to organise themed events, in which there will be food and music from different countries. As an international student, I understand the importance of effectve representation for international students - and my role as officer is crucial to achieve integration and assimilation of international students in the university community. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any inquiries or are in need of assistance - I am more than happy to lend a helping hand.
