  • International students are supported before, during and after their arrival. The University's expert Visa Advisers can give advice on the UK visa application process. 
  • Students can be met at the airport and assisted in travelling to their accommodation. 
  • At the start of term, the International Welcome Lounge provides a safe, supportive place for new students to ask questions, resolve problems and make new friends. A series of tours, trips and events allow students to learn about Bristol and the wider UK.
