… and a very warm welcome to YOU if you are an international student joining us here in the UK! You’ve made an excellent choice in coming to York. We hope you will settle in quickly, and look forward to meeting you soon …

i : Connect International Cafe

iConnect café is a casual international community to

practice English, connect with both international and

local students, and take part in cultural experiences.

At the moment, we are meeting online to chat, play

games, share food recipes and more! It’s another great

way to get to know people and relax after a day of

studies. We meet on Monday evenings from 5-6pm and

we’d love to welcome you to join us- for more information, email Rebecca (

Bible Explore

Bible Explore is an open, friendly community of international students interested in learning about what the Bible is, what it says, and why it matters to our communities today. It doesn’t matter how much or little you know about the Bible or what you believe- everyone is welcome! We meet at Wednesday lunchtimes and we’d love to see you and hear your ideas. For more information, email Rebecca (

What we’ve been up to

We have lots of events that run throughout the year which you can get involved in! This past year, we’ve held a whole variety of events from visiting Scarborough beach, to picnics in the park and having dinners together. In the first term of each year, we also run an International Freshers week where you can learn more about the British culture, and also meet other International students.
