International Welcome Programme


The University runs a free Welcome Programme for new international students (from outside the EU) joining The University of Nottingham in September every year. 

The programme takes place immediately before the start of each academic year and is an excellent opportunity to meet staff and students at the University and get to know the campus. You will also have the chance to complete some practical formalities, such as opening a bank account and registering with the National Health Service (NHS).

As well as academic activities and practical advice sessions, the Welcome Programme also includes social events – making it a great time to make new friends before lectures start.

Details of the Welcome Programme for September 2018 will be published in June.

PLEASE NOTE: The Welcome Programme is administered by the Academic Processes Team and not the International Office. Please direct any queries regarding the Programme to
