Regional Networks

Our Regional Networks connect Commonwealth Scholars and Fellows based at the same university or region while studying in the UK.

The Networks encourage you to meet more regularly, and aim to help you settle into your new environments and build lifelong friendships with other Commonwealth Scholars and Fellows.

Activities vary by region, and include social events, buddy schemes, sporting activities, and research presentations. Each Regional Network has a Coordinator, who welcomes any input from current Scholars and Fellows about how you would like your network to develop.

Get to know your local representative by checking out their profile, and get in touch with your ideas!
