International Student Advisory Service

The International Student Advisory Service provide a dedicated advisory service for international students on non-academic and welfare matters such as immigration and adjusting to life in Northern Ireland.

The Service is also the relevant source for information and advice on immigration and visa matters.

Non-immigration support is also available providing advice related to living in the UK, such as opening bank accounts and accessing the NHS. We also organise the University's International Student Orientation programmes and coordinate events for international students throughout the year.
