Convenor Update - International Community

Hey! Hello, my name is Deep Padmani. I am in my final year of MBA at LBU, and I’m the International Students' Community Convenor for the year 2021-2022. I will have been in post for about four months now. So, what have I been up to at my current position during the past several months? Continue reading to find out!

  • Convenor Meeting:

This meeting’s main aim is to discuss our future plans, what we've been up to, and how we might help each other achieve our goals. This fortnightly meeting is not only a great opportunity to come together to support the other convenors/officers in achieving their goals, but it also provides an opportunity to discuss any important topics or issues that are affecting students and what we can do to address these issues so that all students have the best university experience possible!

International Students' Convenor, Deep Padmani, at the Refreshers Fair

  • Freshers & Refreshers Fairs:

I attended both the freshers fair in September 2021 and the refreshers fair in February 2022. It was a pleasure to meet you all and introduce myself as well as our community! I hope you all got a lot of free stuff... And, of course, learned all there is to know about the Students' Union. Face-to-face interactions are highly essential to me since they not only put a face to a name, but they also helped me create rapport with the students who joined my community! 


  • Refreshed: Connecting you with your communities:

The student’s union held this event in city campus to connect students with their communities. I introduced myself to students and promoted other communities. Of course, Pizza was consumed too! Main aim is to let students know what they were and what they could expect from student’s union.


  • Met with the University’s International Student Engagement Officer:

I met with the International Student Engagement Officer to see how we could work together in the future. We realized that we had similar aims, and both wanted to make international student’s life easy. We will work together soon.


  • Continuing to engage with the community via the MS Teams group:

Finally, I engage with community groups to inform them about interesting opportunities and events happening within the university.


Thanks for reading and see you soon!
