Pre-Arrival and Welcome Arrangements

The International Student Advice Team offers help that includes:
  • Advice and guidance before students arrive, plus help with immigration, employment and finance issues.
  • Being met at the airport during the university's September arrivals weekend.
  • A buddy scheme and social programme to help students make friends and adapt to being in the UK and at university.
  • An introduction to life in Oxford.
  • Advice about working in the UK whilst studying, or after leaving Oxford Brookes.

English Language Requirements

  • Most undergraduate and postgraduate degrees require IELTS Band 6.0 to 6.5 overall (with 6.0 in reading and writing, 5.5 in listening and speaking).
  • Pre-sessional English courses are available if students do not meet university requirements.
  • Please refer to the university website for course-specific requirements and other qualifications accepted.

Accommodation for International Students

  • International students are guaranteed a place in halls of residence for their 1st year of study, provided they meet the application and allocation deadlines.
  • The university halls of residence are a great way to meet people and make new friends. Students will be with people from all over the world so they can learn about different cultures and meet a real mix of people.
  • The halls provide a safe and secure living environment, with supervisors, wardens and security guards on hand.
  • University accommodation is also available to students after their 1st year. Students can book accommodation with a group of friends and choose one of the options specifically designed for continuing students.
