Pre-Arrival and Welcome Arrangements

  • The university supports international students throughout the application process and helps them prepare for student life in the UK. Students can contact the international team or in-country representatives with any enquiries, while specialist teams can advise on a range of issues including visa applications, accommodation, international scholarships and more.
  • The university organises a free international orientation programme for international and EU students a week before the start of the academic year. The programme includes a free airport pick-up from Heathrow or Gatwick airport, free accommodation in halls of residence and activities designed to help students adapt to life at the University of Brighton and meet other students.
