At the International Student Centre (ISC) we're very pleased to welcome back returning students to Derby as well as welcoming new students.

The ISC aims to work with all our international students to provide a broad range of services from providing letters for visas and banks as well as helping you to settle in the UK and make new friends whilst you're here.

We hope to build on the good relationships we've already made with you and we welcome any feedback that will help us to continue to develop the services we offer.

All the team are here to support you during your time at the University.  We can help you with your issues or concerns in many areas including British culture, immigration, your student visa, finance, working and adapting to life in the UK, and personal and welfare problems.

A wide range of support

There is a clear link between your wellbeing and academic success. To give you the best chance of succeeding, we provide a wide range of face to face, telephone and online support.
