Enrol with your university
Don’t forget to register with your university as soon as you arrive.
Make sure you attend the registration event at the date and time your university has given you, and bring your passport as your university needs a copy.

Attend a welcome event
Sign up to one of your university’s new international student welcome events. This is a fantastic way to meet people and to find all the information you need.
If you can’t attend, visit your university’s international office, which can provide you with information on university life, the campus and the local area.
