International Welcome Week

International Welcome Week will take place from Tuesday 19th to Friday 22nd September 2023, and coincides with the start of in-person registration appointments for international students. It’s a great 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.

The week will include  - 

  • In-person information and advice on topics such as healthcare, opening a bank account, study skills and working in the UK
  • Tours of the campus and city of Leicester
  • Social events, including evening activities
  • The opportunity to book onto an optional day trip to Oxford on Friday 22nd September.

We'll also be running a free pickup service from London Heathow Airport (LHR) on Monday 18th September (the day before the start of International Welcome Week).

The full programme will be available later in the summer. In the meantime, once you start planning your arrival you can sign up for International Welcome Week - we'll send you more information and updates as they're available.
