International student welcome

Late arrivals

If you have travel or visa delays and think you will arrive too late to make the enrolment deadline, please contact your faculty and the UKVI-Reporting Team ( Do not travel to the UK unless your late arrival has been agreed by the University.

If late arrival has been agreed, you will have missed the main international student welcome. Don’t worry, we will try our best to provide all the support and information you need to help you settle in quickly. On arrival, look at the Important things to do after you arrive in the UK to study page and visit the Student Hub in the Library if you wish to speak to someone in person. We will be holding a settling in event in November which will help you connect with other students and catch up on anything you miss.

Visit the Student Hub

Settling In event

Thursday 24 November 2022, 17:00
We know there is a lot of information to take in when you first arrive (probably too much). Our Settling In event provides you with an opportunity to meet support staff to ask the questions you haven’t got answers to yet, or to simply meet other students in a relaxed, fun atmosphere.
We will send you invitation details nearer the date so check your emails. This is a very popular event so it would be amazing if you can attend.
