Opportunities for international students

Student ambassador

Visit the Work, volunteering and career planning pages for all opportunities available to our students. 

There are also opportunities specific to international 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!

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.


HOST is a charitable organisation which provides international students with the opportunity to experience a weekend in a British home. All hosts are volunteers who enjoy meeting people from other countries and cultures.
