International Welcome Week


International Welcome Week is taking place between Monday 17th and Friday 21st January 2022. It’s a good opportunity to settle in before the start of your course, get advice on living and studying in the UK and meet staff and other new students.

There's a combination of in-person and online activities. Key information sessions are being streamed online, so that you’ll be able to get involved if you’re still in your home country or if you need to quarantine after you’ve first arrived in the UK.

The week includes -

    • Information and advice on areas such as healthcare, opening a bank account, study skills and working in the UK

    • Free in-person activities   - including karaoke, a day trip to Warwick Castle and ten-pin bowling

    • Tours of the campus and the city of Leicester

The full schedule is now available. Streamed information sessions will be viewable online here (please note that this is different weblink to that listed in the schedule).

Some of the in-person activities (the day trip, ten-pin bowling and the faith tour) require separate sign-up  in advance  - we'll send you links to do this once you've booked a place on International Welcome Week, using the form below.
