International Student Ambassador

The International Student Ambassador role is a flexible, paid, part-time position, where you will be an ambassador for the University and a role model for prospective students.

Talk to a York student

Remember what it was like when you weren't sure of where to study? Be a real help to prospective international students by sharing your experiences of York. Taking part in the Talk to a York Student scheme counts towards the York Award, too!

Winter hosting

If you’re staying on campus over the Christmas and New Year period, would you like to meet with a local person or family for a few hours? This could be for a meal at their house, a walk in the park or to attend a Christmas event together.
