Global Friends

Global Friends is a society which aims to make all international students feel at home and have a wonderful time at the University and in York. The society brings international and British students together and encourages friendships.

By taking part in social and cultural events that we organise on campus we hope that you will meet other international students, British students, and their friends. With a series of gatherings, film nights and various fun and educational trips around the UK, we hope to share and expand on your cultural, travelling, studying experiences and much more with one another. 

Visit the Forthcoming Events page to see what trips are available now.  

The events on the page above are those put on by the International department. There are many more events going on during Welcome Week and throughout the year, so be sure to visit the Students' Union to find out more.

About Amy: I'm now in my third and final year studying International Business Management.
I love travelling and getting to know new people. I really can't stand and dislike spiders. My favourite thing about York is the amazing scenic view you can see from the top of the minster =)
