Study at a University that cares

You’re safe in our hands. We understand international students. You’ll benefit from our years of experience helping students like you achieve their dreams.

Our teachers are experienced, patient and understanding. Most of all, they’re invested in you and your future. They want you to succeed. Whatever background you’re from, we’ll help get to exactly where you need to be.

Here for you when you need us

From start to finish, you have our support. We’re committed to making sure you have the best university experience possible. When you arrive at the airport, we can make sure there’s a friendly face waiting for you. And when you graduate, we’ll be there cheering you on.

Your academic tutors will be for you to answer any questions about your course. INTO Centre staff are there every day if you need to talk to someone. And when the day ends, our support continues. You’ll be given an emergency telephone number and support in your accommodation 24/7.

You’ll also have the support of the University staff. Need to Skype home but can’t connect to the Wi-Fi? Need help finding a book? Don’t worry, visit the Information Centre at the library. Their friendly staff will be happy to help. 

Need help finding a part time job? Not sure what to do when you graduate? The Career Development Centre is the place to visit. They can give you personal career guidance and advice on applying for jobs. They’ll also help you put together a CV or resume.

More about student support

Teachers who understand your needs

Anxious about studying in English? Don’t worry. We understand this is a big step and we’ll help you every way we can. Our teachers are highly qualified and have years of experience helping international students prepare for university.

Teaching styles in the UK might be less formal than you’re used to at home. But don’t worry, we’re here to guide you. You’ll be introduced to how lectures and seminars work in the UK. And you’ll have practical support writing your essays, taking notes and conducting research.

Smaller class sizes mean you’ll get more one-to-one guidance from your teachers. They’ll give you regular feedback on your progress so you can stay on track.

You’ll learn from teachers who teach from experience, not just textbooks. You’re going to learn a lot in a short space of time. And you’ll have everything you need to succeed at university.
