International Student Support

Language support

Extra English language support can be accessed from the University's Centre for English Language Education.

  • Intensive courses are offered one month before the beginning of the academic year
  • Further support is also offered throughout the academic year

Studying in a foreign language is challenging and we would strongly advise all students to make use of these facilities. If a student displays significant language difficulties, extra language training may be made a mandatory part of their course.

Social and academic environment

The University of Nottingham's International Office offers many specialist support services for international students (eg. accommodation, visas, counselling). In addition, The University of Nottingham offers a wide range of social and cultural activities for students to take part in and has an active international student support team.

The School's international research students also have full access to the University's Graduate School where they can meet and mix with postgraduates from across a range of disciplines, both from the UK and abroad. Further information on postgraduate study at Nottingham can be found on the postgraduate prospectus.

The School has a thriving research culture and hosts regular seminars which students are encouraged to attend.

We welcome students of any faith and have provisions for any faith to practise their religion in the appropriate manner. Further information can be found from the University's faith support and advice service.

Student support

  • All full-time, international Masters students are given additional individual and group tutorial support during their course.
  • Doctoral (PhD) students are provided with two supervisors to guide their academic work. They meet with students approximately once a month.
  • Additionally, there is an international liaison lecturer who co-ordinates an interactive programme of academic, social, language and pastoral support.
