International Students House (ISH) is a residential, social and cultural centre for international and British students in central London.
We believe every young person should have the opportunity to succeed whatever their background.
Together with our university partners and supporters, we provide:
- Scholarships opportunities
- A safe home
- A social programme to enable students to succeed while giving them a place to belong.
ISH organises cultural events for students such as cooking classes, theatre groups and sports activities to encourage international friendship and understanding.
ISH organises trips so you can visit new places & cultures, and make friends from around the world along the way. We get a generous grant, so all our trips are subsidised by up to 60% – meaning you can enjoy cheaper travel costs.
We aim to provide an affordable home-from-home for international and UK students reinforced by a social and cultural programme to encourage international friendship.
As part of the ISH Mission, we provide free accommodation for scholars studying at our partnering universities.
All our scholarships give students the opportunity to live at ISH and develop the skills, knowledge and connections they need to make a positive contribution to their communities back home.
