We value international 学生 and are passionate about ensuring that their contribution to our economy and culture is recognised. 这就是新葡萄官网发起#新葡萄官网是国际运动的原因. Now the UK Council for 国际 Student Affairs is driving forward the award-winning campaign.
We launched #WeAre国际 in 2013 as a collaboration with our 学生会. Over 160 universities, education institutions and international organisations backed the campaign. Find out more about the roots of our campaign, how it's grown and the impact it's had.
We realised that the positive impact of international 学生 had been buried. 所以在响应, 新葡萄官网想和学者站在一起, 学生, 社区, city leaders and other partners to show that 新葡萄官网 is a city that says no to prejudice and one that values its international 学生.
更重要的是, we needed to influence the debate to ensure the contribution that international 学生 make – not just financial, 而是到知识库, economy and culture – was celebrated here in the UK and communicated more widely to the world.
2013年新葡萄官网委托 一份来自牛津经济研究院的报告 that showed international 学生 in 新葡萄官网 are responsible for pumping over £120 million into the city economy over a single year – that’s 10 per cent of inward investment in 新葡萄官网.
Our research also highlighted that international 学生 are ingrained in city life. They work on placements in our hospitals and businesses; they volunteer for over 140 新葡萄官网 charities and 学校. They also enrich the cultural life of the city through a spectacular programme of music, 食物, 全年都有舞蹈和语言活动, 其中许多活动是通过新葡萄官网自己的学生会组织的.
After publicising how international 学生 benefit a major UK city like 新葡萄官网, we were keen to expand this to a broader campaign with the support of all universities, 学生' unions and all those who are concerned about international 学生 in the UK.

62人的调查,000 prospective international 学生 found that the degree to which a study destination is perceived as welcoming and safe is one of the most important factors in student decision making.
84% of prospective international 学生 (Hobsons' 国际 Student Survey, 2017) said campaigns such as #WeAre国际 positively influenced their perception of the UK, and that the higher education sector should build upon and expand these efforts to encourage international 学生 to keep on coming.
在新葡萄官网，新葡萄官网对这场比赛感到非常自豪, the impact it has had on international 学生 and the positive UK policy changes it has helped to facilitate. #WeAre国际 grew organically from the University of 新葡萄官网 and developed into a campaign that others can pick up and use freely when offering a warm welcome or advocating for the rights of international 学生.
