The International Group aims to welcome the wives/partners and young children of international graduate and post-doctoral students, as well as international female graduates.

All meetings are held in the Club Flat, 18 Buccleuch Place, 1st floor, right hand door.

The Committee appreciates offers of assistance from Club members for any of the meetings listed. If you can give one or two Tuesday mornings a session to provide contacts for the young women and to help look after their small children, it would be most helpful to us. We also appreciate secondhand baby equipment.
Offers of help to Wendy Rutter, Tel: 0131 447 4974 or to Bo Upton, Tel: 01968 673500.
