Regional Networks

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

The Regional 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. 

The Regional Network Applications for 2020-2021 are now closed.

Thank you to Scholars who applied for one of our Regional Network Coordinator posts.

The selection panel is currently going through the applications that were submitted and will respond to all applicants on the outcome of their application by end of Wednesday 21 October.

Please note, successful applicants will be required to attend an induction training session held over Zoom on either Thursday 29 October or Friday 30 October.
