When I first arrived, all the tutors and staff were friendly. The staff even took the time to walk me to a building I couldn’t find. Everyone spoke to me clearly and were never annoyed when I asked questions or didn’t understand something.

The social events that the International College puts on are really great, and helpful for making new friends. I played basketball in an organised sports tournament, and it was good fun.

Pre-arrival support

At the airport

The College staff will do everything possible to ensure you feel comfortable, safe and happy when you arrive in the UK. They can arrange to pick you up from the airport and bring you directly to your accommodation, giving you one less thing to worry about.

Once you have accepted your offer to study with us, you can book your airport transfers by filling in the form in the pre-arrival area.

Welcome Week

You’ll have a busy first week, meeting teachers and other College staff, and being shown around the University campus and its facilities. You’ll also meet other international students, so it’s a great chance to make friends. In addition, you’ll receive help with practical matters such as setting up a bank account and making sure you are registered with a local doctor.

Social activities

Frequent activities are a staple of College life, and the College Support Services team put on a variety of events for students. You can visit galleries and museums, go see football matches, experience cultural food nights and even join in karaoke sessions – all great ways to socialise and meet new people.
