International Partnerships Assistant
I joined the IPaD team in April 2017, but I started my journey at City with CitySport in December 2016. My previous roles were outside of higher education; after I graduated university I became a manager in the hospitality industry and in 2016 I took up a voluntary role with Citizen’s Advice Bureau as an advisor.
In my current role I assist Jamie with the Study Abroad programme. We are both responsible for helping our students, who are predominantly from the US, with their transition to the UK from their home institutions. We assist students from the moment we receive their application all the way through to the end of their studies here at City and deal with a variety of things along the way such as: accommodation, visa information, tuition fees, timetables, courses and exams and creating student accounts on SITS.
I also help with the Erasmus exchange programme, assisting with mobility and learning agreements, inputting information on the mobility tool and keeping in touch with our outbound students.
