Before you arrive

  1. Important documents

    Make sure you have your passport, Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies, a copy of your offer letter, evidence of your funding via a sponsor letter or bank statement, English Language certificate (where required), TB screening certificate (where required), original certificates for your qualifications, and ATAS certificate (where required).

  2. Travel arrangements

    To help you make your way from the Airport to the University, you will be able to book a taxi through the University who will meet you at the airport and bring you directly to your accommodation.

  3. Luggage

    Keep your important documents safely in your hand luggage. Make a copy of all your documents to pack in your main luggage. We also suggest you leave a copy of all important documents at home. Have a warm jumper/coat for your arrival in the UK as it may be cooler here than your home. Check the weight limitations for luggage with your airline, and also consider that you’ll need to carry your luggage.

  4. Finances

    Make sure you have access to sufficient cash/credit card/travellers cheques for your first few weeks in the UK before you can open a bank account. Check with your relevant government department regarding taking money out of your country as there may be restrictions. Make sure that you’ve organised your finances before you do – how are you paying your tuition fees? Remember that you’re required to pay 50% of your tuition fees on arrival before you can enrol, and may need living expenses for your accommodation.

  5. Complete online enrolment

    Upload a photograph and complete your online enrolment through the university portal. You will not be able to fully enrol and get your university student card until you have completed your online enrolment.
