The International student welcome programme will be on 9 September 2019. Please have a look at last years programme to find out what activities and information we hope to provide.

Is the programme compulsory?

We strongly recommend that you join the programme to give you the best start possible to your experience in Plymouth and, most importantly, for your academic success. 

Not attending will put you at a disadvantage from the start!
