Welcome Arrangements

For international students studying at campuses in Wales:

  • UWTSD organises a meet and greet service for new students who arrive at Heathrow airport, to take them to their accommodation. Dates and times are advertised on the university website and students simply book online.
  • UWTSD organises a series of cultural trips designed to give the opportunity to meet fellow students, learn about the local area and help students settle into life at UWTSD. The excursions are very popular so students wishing to attend need to reserve a place using the online booking form on the university's website.
  • Student Services provide pastoral care to all international students on all campuses. Students can meet the International Student Support Officer and International Student Ambassadors through a variety of activities and drop-in sessions throughout the academic year. Students receive regular emails with information on welfare provisions and cultural activities.
