Pre-Arrival Guide

Preparing to study abroad is such an exciting time but there is so much to think about and prepare. That’s why planning ahead is essential.

To help you plan we’ve created a handy Pre-Arrival Guide with lots of useful tips and advice for organising your Visa and flights, booking your accommodation, arranging your travel to campus, opening your bank account and living in the UK. We’ve thought of every detail to help make your journey run as smoothly as possible.
