International Orientation Programme: 15, 16, 17 September 2016

Orientation and Airport Welcome Service

Make sure not to miss one of the most exciting events of the year: The International Student Services Team is hosting a 3-day Orientation programme for all international, EU and Exchange students prior to the start of the academic year.

The social events for the Orientation Programme are taking place throughout the course of the programme and are free for all Non-UK students. It will give you a chance to familiarise yourself with the campus and Uxbridge before starting your course. Above all it is a great opportunity to make a lot of friends and enrol onto your course before all other students arrive. You will be able to attend information sessions on banking, travelling around the UK, Union of Brunel Students and you will also be able to find out about the various free services offered on campus. Activities during these three days will include a day trip, a campus and Uxbridge walking tour and lots of social events! Breakfast and dinner are included which means you don’t have to worry about cooking during the programme.

96% of past students rated the orientation as “Excellent” or “Very good". Here are some comments from last year's participants:

"The International Student Orientation is an excellent programme where you can learn about your new university and make friends immediately. It’s good way to start your UK journey"

Free for International EU and Exchange Students. All you need to pay for are the extra nights in accommodation and lunch. 

If you have been allocated a room on campus please let our accommodation team know you will be arriving early. There will be an extra charge for your additional nights’ stay.

We will be running a free Airport Welcome Service on Tuesday 13 September and Wednesday 14 September at Heathrow for new International students who are attending the International Student Orientation Programme.

The Airport Welcome Service will consist of our friendly Student Helpers meeting you at Arrivals and accompanying you to the campus using public transport between 7am and 7pm. Just look out for the people in red Brunel University T-Shirts! If a number of international students are arriving in quick succession, we might wait a little while so that you can all go together. The bus ride itself will be short and travel expenses will be covered.

Airport Welcome Service (Only)

We will also be running an additional airport welcome service on Sunday 18 September for new international students who are not attending the International Student Orientation Programme.

Pre-sessional Students

Note to current pre-sessional students: If you are currently studying on a pre-sessional course at Brunel University London, unfortunately you are not eligible to register for our International Student Orientation Programme. But don’t worry – it’s almost the same as the orientation you had when you first arrived (campus and Uxbridge tours, registration, etc.).
