The international advice team, based centrally within the University’s Student Hub, is here to support you throughout your studies and to help you to get the most out of student life.

We can provide information, advice and guidance on a wide range of issues including visas and immigration, life in the UK and employment. We can also help with any worries or questions you may have prior to arriving in the UK.

The international advice team work with colleagues across the University to:

  • provide free advice and guidance relating to all aspects of international student life, in accordance with the competency framework of the Immigration Services Commissioner’s Code of Practice;
  • deliver presentations and workshops on a range of practical issues;
  • update students on relevant issues through various University publications, information leaflets and online services, and co-ordinate the international welcome programme for new students.

The service is open Monday to Friday during term-time, with reduced hours of operation during the vacations.
