Meet The Team

  • Anne Davis - Global Experiences Assistant, Outgoing Study Abroad and Vacation Travel

    I provide administrative and practical support for students from Lancaster University travelling to institutions abroad on the Study Abroad programme. I am focused on ensuring the students have a positive experience during their studies. Due to my own experience of studying abroad in California for a few months, I can appreciate the cultural differences experienced and the impact they have.

  • Cara Pinder-Emery - Global Experiences Assistant, Incoming Study Abroad and Global Summer Schools

    After graduating from Lancaster University with a degree in Linguistics, I did an English-teaching volunteer placement in Germany. I now support international students during their time at Lancaster, as I administrate the incoming Study Abroad and Exchange programmes. In the summer, I coordinate four Global Summer Schools: Introducing Britain, Understanding Britain, English for Academic Purposes, and Study Start.

  • Anyka Webb - Global Experiences Officer, Study Abroad

    I am responsible for ensuring a smooth and efficient application process for Study Abroad and Exchange students. It also includes continued support for students, responding to a wide range of questions they may have, to further enhance their global experience and to help students have a positive and memorable experience.  I also assist the Head of Global Experiences to develop the incoming programmes to continue to provide a relevant and varied opportunity for students from around the globe.

  • Michael Barrow - Global Experiences Administrator, Erasmus+

    I have two degrees from Lancaster University and have been involved with global programmes at the university for the last 3 years. Visiting Malaysia in 2015 with Lancaster University was an inspirational opportunity. I really enjoy working with the team to continually improve and provide new opportunities for students to globalise their experience at Lancaster.

  • Ana Onate Gutierrez - Global Experiences Officer, Erasmus+
  • Julia Devaux - Global Experiences Officer, Vacation Travel and Global Summer Schools
  • Sarah Hutchinson - Global Experiences Manager
  • Jane Atkinson - Head of Global Experiences

    I have over 20 years’ experience working with students in a range of areas including student exchanges, the Erasmus+ programme, international student welfare and  international student recruitment.  I spent a year in Germany as a British Council Language Assistant.  I regularly visit our partners overseas and am always pleased to meet Lancaster students who are studying abroad.  I am a member of the Outward Mobility and Europe Network Groups at Universities UK where the UK’s national strategy for Outward Mobility was developed.  I am also a member of BUTEX which supports and promotes student mobility from UK universities to partners worldwide.

  • Ben Matthews - Head of Global Engagement

    My role is to lead Lancaster’s Global Experiences team who provide both on and off campus opportunities including Study Abroad. Our team goal is to ensure every student has the opportunity to participate; on their campus, within their course and, if they wish, through international travel. We work to support students and colleagues across the University to develop new and exciting opportunities that sustain our position as a world class institution. We’re a friendly team so if you have an idea or feedback for us please get in contact.
