AFIS (Assembly For International Students)

LOKO, Stura and KULeuven (Pangaea) are organizing a series of unique events for all the internationals that are associated with the university.

AFIS (Assembly For International Students) was born out of the idea that internationals should be more involved and heard in Leuven. Therefore, we wanted to create an open platform where you can vent your: innovative ideas, dreams, needs, but also your concerns and frustrations.

These meetings will be held twice/semester (in English). The first meeting will be a hearing, where we will ask for your direct input, and the second thematic meeting we will discuss certain topics in greater detail.

We want this to be a very approachable platform with a hop-in-hop-out principle. Everybody should feel welcome and feel heard. With getting to know what really lives among internationals, we want to actively do something with the information that will be gathered here. In order for us to enhance the lives of all the international students here in Leuven!

The first meeting will take place on the 29th of October 2018, from 6pm until 8pm.
It will take place at the Campus of Social Sciences (Parkstraat 45), at room SW 00.113 (same campus as where Pangaea is located).
The second meeting is to be announced.
There is no need to sign up, you can come as you are.

We are looking forward to seeing and hearing all of you!
