About this university

International students

The International Team is on hand to answer any questions that students from outside the UK may have before or during their studies. This starts with the welcome and orientation program that includes collection from the airport as well as an Intro week that helps students get to grips with their new home and find all the facilities they will need. The week includes a number of social events to get involved with. The website also has information for application sorted by country as well as English language skills for those to whom it isn’t a native language. The Student Union offers representation and support for the students at the university and is a member of the National Unions of Students (NUS). All students are automatically members and the union provides a range of services for its members. It organises the clubs and societies for students to enjoy outside the classroom as well as offering support and advice for members on academic and non-academic matters. There is a range of traditional and modern sports taking place at the university. These include football for men and women, both forms of rugby, cricket and hockey. The sports clubs make use of recently refurbished facilities including a sports hall, fitness suite, gym and squash courts as well as rugby/football pitches, tennis courts and a running track. There is also a state of the art 3G all-weather pitch. Societies range from interest groups such as the film or creative writing society to academic subjects such as psychology and into the performing arts with dance groups. Students can also get involved in the running of the union as well as volunteer and charity groups to help give back to the community.
