Student support

Unrivalled support for A-level students

INTO is dedicated to supporting all students in their life-changing journeys.

Our Newton A-level Programme students are especially well cared-for, with an extensive support network to guide you every step of the way.

We'll help you prepare for your arrival, support you with applications, and get you settled into student life away from home.

No matter how large or small the issue, there'll always be someone there to help.

Support at INTO

INTO is dedicated to ensuring that you feel totally safe and supported. When you first arrive, your caring Student Services team will help you settle in to student life in Norwich.

There are a range of 24/7 support services, including a 24-hour emergency telephone number and residential wardens within student residences.

Visa workshops offer information, support and guidance on renewing your student visa. And individual appointments are available for more specific advice.

Language advisors speak a range of languages including Chinese, Russian and Arabic. They're here to help you if you don't yet feel confident communicating in English.

Support applying for university

You'll receive specialist practical advice on applying to top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

Your personal tutor will guide you through the process of:

  • writing university applications for maximum impact
  • crafting an exceptional personal statement
  • applying through UCAS
  • making an impact during your university interviews

You'll also have opportunities to visit universities, and to discuss your applications with academics and admissions staff, to help you make the right choice.

"The teachers are fantastic. They are very good at making our lessons interesting. I really like how they use creative ways of learning - I find it helps me remember things better." Celeste Yau from Malaysia
Students under the age of 18

Before we accept a student under 18 years of age, parents must sign a consent form authorising nominated staff to act in loco parentis (on behalf of the parent/carer) in the case of an emergency.

Parents are also required to complete a medical information form. Relevant forms will be sent to parents and the student with the confirmation documents. No student will be accepted without these forms having been completed and returned to us before the start of the course.

We recommend that parents appoint a UK-based guardian for international students under 18. If parents are making their own arrangements for either guardianship services or a friend or family member in the UK to act as guardian to the student, evidence of these arrangements must be supplied before the course starts.

Please contact us for further details.
