New Starters

Updated 4 February 2019

We are looking forward to welcoming you as a new student on the City Study Abroad Programme, and to help you prepare for coming to the UK we will be updating these pages up until you arrive, so you might want to bookmark this page as we will update the information in the run up to the start of your programme.

Before you leave - what you should bring with you, how to seek academic approval for your studies, and how to ensure you have the right entry clearance to come to the UK.

Arriving in the UK - what to expect when you arrive, travel information from the airport and arriving at your accommodation

First few weeks - orientation, add/drop for City courses, and settling into your new home

We look forward to seeing you soon!
