International When You Arrive

Check out the useful information below to help you settle in to University life.  This page concentrates on what is most useful for you for the first couple of weeks, after that our International Student Support page should have everything you'll need to ensure your time with us is successful.

If you haven't arrived yet please click the following link to our International Before You Arrive webpage which will give you plenty of things that you can do to make coming to University an easy and smooth experience.

It is essential that you make arrangements to arrive in time to attend the International Welcome Day on Friday 22 September 2017 (for students starting in semester 1) or Friday 19 January 2018 (for students starting in semester 2).

The University organises course inductions and orientation programmes for all new arrivals to help you settle into University and Wolverhampton life, meet staff informally and make new friends.  Please ensure you attend your course induction as well as the Welcome Meeting.

Please be aware that there is no advantage to arriving in Wolverhampton earlier than the advertised date. If you arrive early you may not be able to move into your accommodation until the official 'moving in' date.

If you are from outside the EU you will not be able to open a bank account, register with a doctor or look for employment until you are enrolled at the University.
