Working with our colleagues
We work with staff and students at York to ensure wide input into and engagement in York's internationalisation agenda and we welcome comments from anyone who would like to contribute. We have set up an informal International Staff Forum which is open to all.
Student recruitment activities are still managed by the International Team in the Student Recruitment and Admissions Office.
