School of Politics and International Relations

International Students

The School of Politics and International Relations has a large and vibrant postgraduate community. It attracts students of a very high calibre, from the UK and overseas. In a typical year, around 110 postgraduate students register often from 15-20 different countries.

The school has over 40 academic members of staff, many of them from other countries themselves, and all with considerable experience of working with students from different educational and cultural backgrounds.

Support for international students

The University of Nottingham offers an excellent support structure for international students, offering advice and support on a wide range of issues, including scholarships, funding, visas, accommodation, travel and health matters.

Welcome programme

The University runs a Welcome programme prior to the start of the term in September each year. This gives international students a chance to meet fellow students and to settle in Nottingham prior to the start of their studies. The Welcome programme includes free airport pick up and coach transfer to Nottingham, and accommodation and meals are provided for the duration of the programme.

Meet our staff

We appreciate that it may be difficult for international students to visit Nottingham prior to making an application. However, our International Student Recruitment Team has agents in many countries.

In addition, representatives from the University regularly visit higher education fairs and exhibitions all over the world. This offers a good opportunity for potential students to meet staff from the University of Nottingham and to find out more about study opportunities.
