Our International Student Centre provides a broad range of services for international students 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.

All the team are here to support you during your time at the University and 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.

If you are an EU citizen, our Post-Brexit EU student guidance provides more information about studying in the UK after Brexit.
