Services for International Students

The Student Services Team works to ensure that international students receive comprehensive and relevant advice. Each campus has a Helpzone where students can receive support and assistance on issues they may be facing.

This includes the International Welcome Week which gives students access to all the information and support they need before they start their course, while throughout the year, various trips, parties and social events are organised for international students.
