Campaigning for change
Global Citizens Network

The Global Citizens Network is open to home students and international students (this includes both EU and non-EU students) that are studying at the University of Huddersfield. The Global Citizens Network is run by the students in the network with the support of Huddersfield Students’ Union.

In the Global Citizens Network, you can volunteer to support international students by representing their experiences locally and nationally. You will get the opportunity to share what you want changed on campus, meet with local MPs and share your experiences to create national change by working with the National Union of Students, all to make international student life better. Whether these changes are around campaigning for changes to the Student VISA system or supporting you to have a better educational experience.

This network is for its members to direct. If you want to fundraise, volunteer or campaign then we can support you to do so!

Want to be a part of the Network?

We're looking for passionate and motivated students who want to support international students to ensure that those students are heard, better represented and voice their views from a position of authenticity.

Want to speak to the Global Citizens Network?

Global Citizens Network members are volunteers. They offer their time to the scheme to run campaigns, challenge the university structures and ensure equality on campus for international students.

If you would like to ask for support from the Global Citizens Network then please contact Raphaella Ward (
