Get Involved with 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
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.

stand and dislike spiders. My favourite thing about York is the
amazing scenic view you can see from the top of the minster
