George Volis

UK & Ireland Senior Program Coordinator

george@academic-solutions.com

George is a true European man. He was born and bred in Athens, Greece, but also has a little bit of Spanish in his blood. 

George did his final three years of high school at an American school in Dubai, UAE and then moved to do his undergraduate degree at Richmond, the American International University in London. Throughout his degree he worked as a Resident Director working with local, international and study abroad students and did two internships, so he is our London expert.

George also lived in Hong Kong for a short while and is very passionate about meeting new people and making sure they get to enjoy London as much as he does. In his spare time you will find him watching or playing football, looking for a new cool place to eat and making new friends.

“Your life is as good as you make it. Nothing is over until you decide it is over. Never stop trying and keep reminding yourself that your life is yours to enjoy.”
- George Volis
