Preparing to travel

Plan your travel arrangements carefully for a smooth journey, including your visa, packing and transport connections. Ensure you also have accommodation ready for when you arrive. Students travelling to England from overseas, including UK nationals, may have to self-isolate (quarantine). 





Welcome and induction activities

The university runs a free welcome programme for international students joining us in September and October. 

This is a great way to meet other students and access guidance on completing practical tasks such as opening a UK bank account. You’ll also be able to take part in online sessions on health, wellbeing, sport and more.

Get ready for student life

There are some practicalities to complete when you arrive, such as opening a bank account and registering with a doctors' surgery. It's also a good idea to read up on what to expect when you will live and study in the UK.
