My name is Chloe Thomas.
I am the International Student Support Officer
and my role is to support all international students
during your time at York St John. I start by making
contact with students after they have received offers to study
here, and I am then one of the main points of contact as
you prepare to travel to the UK and to York. I can help with
Pre-Arrival information, visa & immigration questions, social
activities on campus, Welcome Week events, and many other
I will be here when you
arrive at York St John during January Welcome Week (20 -
24 January 2014 for Semester 2 starters). I will be handing
out Arrival Packs to all new international and exchange students,
so you can meet me then and ask me any questions you may have.
Normally I am based in the Holgate building and you can ask to
see me at the Student Advice Desk, but I will also be around campus
and present at many of your Welcome Week sessions so there will
be lots of opportunities to speak to me about any
questions or concerns as you settle into UK life.
One of the most important
parts of my job is to help you to get the most out of your time at
York St John. I work with the Global
Friends group, the Students' Union, and many other University
teams to make sure that there are plenty of social events and
plenty of support for students.
I look forward to meeting
all of you soon.
