International Programmes Department
Meet the International Programmes team
Our team has extensive experience in organising bespoke programmes for universities across the world and many of us have lived abroad ourselves. Find out more about us below.
Co-Director of International Programmes and Greater China contact
I have worked in the International Programmes Department for 14 years, and love being part of one of the oldest colleges in Oxford. Before coming to Hertford I lived and worked in Taiwan for eight years. This gave me the chance to experience life in Asia, which was a wonderful experience. Before moving to Taiwan, I worked in food retail marketing in the North of England for several years.
I am responsible for the non-academic side of the department, and am very involved in making links with universities in the Greater China area. Our team regularly visit China, Hong Kong and Taiwan to promote our summer programmes, and to meet our university partners. If you would like to discuss a summer programme at Hertford College or to arrange a meeting, then please do email me. My interests include Asian art, British pottery, Liverpool FC, and badminton.
Co-Director of International Programmes and Japan contact
Andrew has been working in the field of international education for over 30 years. He has taught and lectured in various subjects in the UK, Italy and Japan. He has overall responsibility for academic programme design, and believes that all Hertford College International Programmes should be challenging, enjoyable and inspiring as well as of practical use to students. Andrew is very interested in art, music, travel, and languages.
Assistant EFL Director of Studies
I am Assistant Director of Studies in the International Programmes Department at Hertford College. I have been involved in English language education since 1988. Before working at Hertford, I lived and taught in Italy for over 15 years, worked at University College Dublin, and also worked in EFL publishing at Oxford University Press. I work alongside all my colleagues in the International Programmes team. Together, we are responsible for the planning, writing and delivery of our EFL and ESP programmes and we liaise very closely to ensure that all our students have a positive, productive experience here at Hertford College.
I believe that working closely with students and their universities creates a challenging, stimulating learning environment where the students improve their English through culture and language classes. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Hertford College! My interests include art, film, medieval history, and tennis.
Assistant EFL Director of Studies
I work alongside Susan and Hannah in the International Programmes Department to ensure the smooth running of all aspects of the academic side of the programmes. I have been involved in education since 1994: using participatory video skills with youth groups, teaching in Nepal, Spain and at the Swan School in Oxford and running EFL teacher training programmes. Our ethos at Hertford College is to offer a bespoke and exemplary service, and it is a privilege to be creating programmes that embody this and to be part of the students’ learning experience. My interests include mindfulness in education, music, food and singing.
