International Officers' Group

The International Officers Group includes representatives from across the Higher York partnership, with current membership being:

  • Gwion Sims, Acting International Recruitment Manager, University of York
  • Jon Bell, International Manager, York College
  • Sally Steadman, Head of External Relations, Askham Bryan College
  • Samantha Finegold and Vikki Wilson, International Development Officers, York St John University

The group meet approx. three times a year, to identify and take forward collaborative activities relating to international students, and to share institutional priorities and practices.

The Group recently commissioned a marketing video aimed at international students, promoting York as a study destination. The film includes footage of the city centre as well as soundbites from interviews with current international students. You can view the film on our International Students page.

The Group also coordinates an annual civic welcome event for international students in the Autumn, hosted by the Lord Mayor.
