Who we are.

NISAU UK is the apex UK organisation representing students, alumni and young professionals of Indian origin. We are your Home Away From Home; and work passionately towards our goal of ensuring that there is a student safety net for all international Indian students in the UK. From running a multi-year long campaign to bring the Post Study Work Visa to the UK; 360 support to thousands during the Covid pandemic and even supporting Indian students trapped in the Ukraine war, NISAU volunteers painstakingly work towards the welfare of the Indian student and alumni community.

The definitive reason for our existence is to represent you, the UK's young Indian diaspora. We are a unity project, an international platform, and an advisory council all in one! We are an umbrella organisation for India and India-related student societies in the UK and aim to bring a unified voice of India's diaspora youth, on a single, international platform, promote Indian culture and further the UK-India relationship by fostering a dynamic youth-led leadership ecosystem.

We are multi-award winning, and our work has been recognised by various forums including most recently with us winning the 'Best Student Support' award and our Chairperson Sanam Arora picking up the 'Outstanding Contribution to the Industry' award at the prestigious PIEoneer International Higher Education awards. We also came up highly commended for 'Association of the Year'.​

Our values define who we are.


They are the fundamental beliefs of our organisation. They guide our actions and behaviour. They influence the way we work with each other, the way we represent our members, the way we engage with our local communities in Britain, and with India.

Every day, each one of us makes choices that directly affect the way India, and its citizens are viewed in the United Kingdom. Every decision we make and every action we take directly impacts the way our communities experience us. Therefore, it is both our responsibility to ensure that we can do justice to representing true, contemporary India when we are in the UK, and to help further the historical ties that these two great nations have shared. We believe that it is possible to do well, by doing good. Our values help us define paths that can help us to stay true to this fundamental belief. They helped us come up with the concept of NISAU, and they help us every day, as we build further our platform to help the young Indian diaspora engage with India and the United Kingdom in meaningful and impactful ways. Ultimately, our core values and guiding principles help us in achieving our vision of positive contribution to our two great nations, and to an even stronger bilateral relationship.
