The University of Hull is home to students and staff from more than 100 countries and offers a friendly, inclusive environment to study.
Seyi Akinremi, also an Advertising and Marketing Masters student, said: “I think it’s very important for international students to visit cities or towns surrounding the University. It gives them an understanding of the history here and also an opportunity to meet people from different cultures especially here in Yorkshire.”
Richard Stott, Managing Director for the Kexgill Group (which owns and operate the University Quarter), said: “Following on from the successful Hull University Business School Cultural Ball, I wanted to show the student organising team the very best of Yorkshire. There are so many beautiful places in our locality. We travelled to Robin Hood’s Bay, Whitby, Helmsley, and then the highlight, a private tour of Castle Howard. It was a memorable day.”
Dr Fannie Yeung, Lecturer in Marketing and Director of Student Experience at Hull University Business School, said: “I was so thrilled and proud to accompany our international master students who were being treated as special guests during our visit to Castle Howard.
“They were interviewed, given a grand tour of the house, and treated to sumptuous high tea. As a token of their appreciation, they presented our host with a Nigerian talking drum which I understand is now part of the house's collection.”
Jamiu said: “A very big thanks to the University Quarter for this memorable trip. And also a big shoutout to the team and the University of Hull for bringing us together from different part of the world. Let do this again!”
