Moving to a university in another country can be both exciting and daunting. The University of Westminster organises a free Welcome Programme to support students who are new to the UK.
The International Student Welcome Programme is a three-day event which will introduce new International and EU students to living and studying in the UK. The programme is an excellent opportunity to meet staff and students at the University before lectures start.
On Monday 9 September, international students can enrol early. Over the following two days, there will be workshops and presentations including a talk from the police about keeping safe in London, student advice sessions on immigration and visas, the National Health Service and banking in the UK.
Helpful information about getting involved in activities at the University and beyond will be available and free refreshments will be provided. There will also be exciting events and tours. In recent years, these have included an evening boat cruise along the Thames and a trip to Brighton.
Please note that places on the programme are limited and must be booked before the deadline on Sunday 1 September.
