International student welcome programme

Moving to a university in another country can be both exciting and daunting. The University of Westminster organises a free welcome programme for students who are new to the UK.

The International Student Welcome Programme is a one day event. It will help you meet new people and introduce you to living and studying in the UK. The programme is an excellent opportunity to meet staff and students at the University and become familiar with the campus before your lectures start.

There will be workshops and presentations with lots of useful information such as a talk from the Police about keeping safe in London, information sessions on immigration and visa, the National Health Service and banking in the UK.

Who is the International Student Welcome Programme for?

The International Student Welcome Programme is for international students, including students from the European Union, who are new to the UK and are due to start a degree course at the University in January 2020.

The programme is not for Education Abroad students or Exchange students that are here for one semester/one year, as you will have your own orientation programme organised by the Education Abroad unit.

When and where will the programme be held?

The Welcome Programme is on Monday 13 January 2020 from 10am to 3pm.

The programme will be held at our Marylebone Campus.

You will need to book a place to attend the Welcome Programme.
