International students of 2017-18: your journey starts now!

03 August 2017


Preparing for your arrival to the UK can seem particularly overwhelming. You may have lots of questions; what do I need to bring? How do I arrange my travel? What paperwork do I need to have?

We’ve put together some useful information in ‘preparing for your arrival’ to help you get ready to study in the UK.

 Important: contact details

  • Your university or college should have sent you information about arrival, including a phone number for support. Keep this number with you when you travel. Check to make sure you have this – if you can’t find it please contact your institution.
  • This will seem obvious but make sure you know the address of where you need to get to. Print or write this down – don’t rely on your phone/tablet for essential information like this!

Read the rest of our advice including documents to keep in your hand luggage, getting from the airport and how much money to bring (and how to bring it).
