International Welcome Week

International Welcome Week will take place from Tuesday 30 January to Friday 2 February 2024, and coincides with  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 ten pin bowling and other activities to help you meet other new students
  • The opportunity to book onto an optional day trip on Friday 2 February

We'll also be running a free pickup service from London Heathrow Airport (LHR) on Monday 29 January (the day before the start of International Welcome Week).

The full programme will be available in January. 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.
