Isaac Tay

JCR International's Officer

Hello! I’m Isaac (he/him), I’m in my second year of reading Philosophy, Politics and Economics and I’m the JCR International’s Officer.

I hail from Singapore and have lived there my whole life, and I’m thrilled to be your International’s Officer this year. I hope to create a safe space and build a community for international students in college. My role means I’ll be helping you settle in, managing vacation storage, and organising events like the International Students’ Dinner and pub nights.

My main goal is to make your college life as enjoyable and hassle-free as possible, so I’m more than happy to help with anything you need me for (even if it’s not strictly related to being an international student). I know that moving overseas to start university can be intimidating, but don’t worry—Somerville has a wonderful community and we’re delighted to have you here. If there’s anything you’d like to ask, feel free to drop me a line on Instagram @waytoohyper. I can’t wait to meet you when Michaelmas begins!

Where Next?
