Here in the UK, a warm welcome is waiting for you.

UK universities have adapted to the Covid-19 pandemic, ensuring student safety remains top priority while continuing to deliver the world-class teaching the UK is known for. Each UK university has dedicated staff to support international students at every step of their journey: from application, to preparing for travel, to supporting you on arrival and throughout your time at university.

We want you to feel welcome and at ease when you arrive in the UK, and would like to reassure all international students that UK universities are ready for you. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your university directly.
