You may find studying in the UK different to how you’ve studied previously at your home institution, but don’t worry, we’re here to help you get used to things.
The University runs a 'Studying in the UK' workshop especially for Study Abroad Programme students in week 2 – more details of this will be given during Study Abroad Programme orientation. It focuses on your specific needs, which will differ to those of degree-seeking students so it’s really important that you attend. We’ll give you more details about this workshop once you’re here.
The Study Advice team also has a lot of resources available to help you improve your study skills – from online videos and guides, to regular workshops and one-to-one advice.
Please note: Unfortunately the Academic English Programme (AEP) is not open to Study Abroad Programme students, however our English for Erasmus Students module contains similar content and offers the same level of language support.
We want you to feel at home here, so encourage you to attend a number of events taking place during Welcome Week which are designed to help international students adjust to life here in the UK. See the full list of events.
The British Council has also issued a guide to studying and living in the UK which covers everything from using public transport to security, which you might find useful.
If you have any queries about your studies or student life throughout the year, please contact the Erasmus and Study Abroad Office who will be happy to help.
