Online International Conversation Afternoon (ICA)

ICA consists of weekly conversation sessions with people from all over the world.

Each week there is a particular topic to discuss, with suggested questions sent to participants in advance.

It's also a great opportunity to make new friends and become more knowledgeable about other cultures.

ICA is currently held weekly on Wednesdays (12pm UK Time) and Thursdays (4pm UK Time).

Apply for ICA.

Work experience

Paid mentors roles

A mentor is a paid part-time role where you are required to provide online social events to our short course students. This summer we have students from various countries all over the world taking online short courses with us. We are looking for a number of University of York students to join our team as online mentors. 

An ideal candidate for this role is someone who has excellent social skills and a warm, welcoming and supportive manner. Furthermore, a mentor should be able to adapt their communication style to different cultural contexts.
