If you are a new international student, you probably have many questions about life at York. Fortunately, our team of Global Liaisons is here to help you!

Global Liaisons are senior students who study in different programs and can speak many different languages. During the Summer months, they host a series of online information sessions on topics that matter most to a new international student. Also they organize coffee breaks for students throughout the academic year and summer. They look forward to meeting you online and in person!

Global Liaisons are available to chat with you one-on-one online if you have any questions that our information sessions do not fully answer. You can connect with them on Facebook by clicking their photos.
