There will be a number of informative, academic, and social events taking place during the first few weeks after your arrival.  These will be run by the Study Abroad Office, the Student Life Team, the Student Union, and the individual subject schools.

Our Orientation programme is released during the summer for September starters and December for January starters.  Students will be sent details once they're finalised.

Social media

We manage a closed Facebook group for Visiting Study Abroad Students, which we'll invite you to once we’ve received your nomination. If you apply independently please get in touch with us to receive an invitation. This will be an opportunity to meet your fellow students before you arrive, as well as a place where we can post interesting opportunities in the UK as they arise.
