This website is related to the ministry of Friends International (FI). A large proportion of the students that FI serves in the UK are postgraduates. We also want to continue to serve students who have returned to their home countries where many take on positions of great responsibility. Following the mind of Christ in our work requires a wisdom that is not just individual, but also communal. We hope that these resources will help students and ex-students draw on the wisdom of others who have gone before them. At present our online resources are mainly UK or Western based, but we hope over time to benefit much more from the knowledge and experience of Christians in other nations as they work out their faith in their lives.
The number of international students in the UK is increasing rapidly. In 2008-9, 15% of students in higher education were from overseas, but for postgraduates the proportion is 43% 1.
