Cayman Connection UK is a network for groups and individuals associated with the Cayman Islands who now live, work or study in the UK.
Caymanian students in the UK are welcome to join either the larger student database to be kept up to date with events and news, or our small active group of Cayman Student Ambassadors (CSAs) to help manage the network. If you have some time and passion or just want to be kept in the loop we’d love to hear from you REGISTER HERE!
Join Cayman Student Ambassadors (CSAs)
We are always on the lookout for volunteers to help us keep the momentum of the network, including events management, blogging and social media, website content management and newsletter writing. We meet in London at least quarterly and you can join any meeting by Skype. If you would like to be part of the growing team of active “doers” please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Cayman Student Ambassadors (CSAs) – TEAM
JULIANNA WOOD – LEAD STUDENT AMBASSADOR
Juliana is the Lead Cayman Student Ambassador for CCUK assisting with the coordination of our student meetings, annual reception, publication of the annual review and providing pastoral care to our students studying in the UK. Juliana has been involved with CCUK for a number of years whilst completing her undergraduate degree in Law and Accounting & Finance at the University of Kent in the historic city of Canterbury. Juliana is currently living in London pursuing her MA in Commercial Legal Practice at BPP University of Law and intends to begin her Articles of Clerkship this year and qualify as an attorney-at-law in the Cayman Islands in due course.
In the past, Juliana has held the roles of Undergraduate Representative of the Caymanian Bar Association Student Chapter, Non-Law Pathway Representative and Committee Executive of the Kent Student Law Society and Vice President of the University of Kent International Students Committee. As a Cayman Student Ambassador and a student studying abroad, Juliana can sympathise with the concerns and thrills of living abroad. Juliana welcomes all questions about living and studying in the UK and is ready to share her personal/professional advice.
I’m Jamal Hinds from George Town, Grand Cayman.
21 years old and live on Holloway Road, London for the past four years.
I recently received a BSc in Accounting and Management with Finance from Birkbeck College, University of London.
I’m currently pursuing an MSc in Accounting and Management from Queen Mary, University of London.
CCUK Leader Kate Kandiah and her team of CSA’s have provided Caymanians that are studying or working in the UK the opportunity to network with officials from the public/private sector and the chance to gain leadership experience.
If you are a student currently living in or planning on moving to the UK, I would recommend registering with CCUK.
Arren Croy McCoy
My name is Arren McCoy and I currently study at the University of Kent; majoring in Biomedical Science with particular academic and career interest into research. I have been a member of CCUK for the past 2 years and have benefitted immensely from the various networking events and annual receptions. The venues are opportune for interaction with fellow Caymanians, members of the Cayman Islands Cabinet including the Honorable Premier and other Government dignitaries. As an overseas student, familiar faces can be a blessing when away from home. Attendance at the CCUK events presents the ability to meet individuals with similar interests within a welcoming environment, allowing for personal development, exposure and engaging conversations. Thus I would encourage persons studying in the UK who are able to attend the CCUK events to do so, as I have gained great experiences and lasting memories over the years. Having thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated the program I have decided to offer my services as a Cayman Student Ambassador to give back to the initiative. My responsibility includes Sponsorship coordination and Pastoral Care which will be split with David Ramsaran, aiming to lend a listening ear and helping hand where possible. Should you wish to contact me, I can be reached via email:email@example.com or mobile: 07534733316. I look forward to hearing from you and making your time in the UK a more enjoyable one.
David Ramsaran is currently an undergraduate student studying Law at Oxford Brookes University. He previously completed his A-levels at Millfield School in Somerset, UK. He has a keen interest in travelling and has been educated in the UK since 2011. During his time in the UK he has taken part in sports at a number of different levels. He was formerly a member of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve and gained many contacts through the various activities he has taken part in. CCUK has helped him stay connected with Caymanian students studying in the UK. He is happy to answer any questions from anyone studying or moving to the UK.
