Support and guidance every step of the way
Travelling to the UK to study should be exciting, but it can be daunting too. Getting settled in a new country with different customs, languages, food and currency is a challenge.
Thankfully, we’re used to making students from all over the world feel at home. Last year we supported 493,000 students from 200 countries before setting off and all the way through their studies.
From our friendly teaching staff to our excellent pastoral care, we’ll make sure you have all the support and assistance you need.
What support is available to students
A welcoming multicultural atmosphere
- The UK is highly diverse, with different cultures and religions from all over the world creating a unique feel in every different city. You’ll find a vibrant and varied atmosphere wherever you go, from festivals to art and culture.
- The diversity of world food on offer in the UK is growing all the time, so whether you want to discover new tastes or find dishes and ingredients from home, there’s plenty to explore.
- One of the reasons international students feel especially at home in the UK is the diversity of our universities. 20 per cent of academic staff in the UK are from overseas, meaning you’ll be connecting with people from all over the world, no matter what you choose to study.
