The best advice I can give is to connect: connect with the Dons, connect with fellow students. These connections helped me acclimatize to the culture here, understand the different ways to navigate university life, and of course, to get involved with residence life and other organizations at York.

I’ve been part of York International for three years now. I started my first job as a Global Liaison at York International, since then I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and interacting with many students and staff members and built great connections. I call York International my home away from home.

First Year, Business & Society
Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies
I had an unforgettable experience in the YUELI program. The Academic Program led to easier studying and successful goal achievement at YU. The program requires students to attend lectures and take notes, and I think this is a highlight of YUELI. By building academic skills, students learn what they need to work on to attain success in a classroom environment.
