International Orientation Programme

All international and EU students are invited to join our online Orientation Programme in September 2021. 

The International Orientation Programme aims to give you the best start to life in the UK and helps prepare you for study at Brunel University London. Whether it's your first experience of another country or you have studied in the UK before, our programme is designed to give you essential information and support.

If you are travelling from or through a red list country, we recommend that you arrive in the UK by 1 September 2021. This will allow you to complete the 10-day quarantine requirement before arriving at Brunel ready to join our programmes. In addition to your orientation, we have prepared a special programme for all students to help you adjust to life at university. Be sure to book sessions for GetUready Transition Week and check out our ever expanding list of Welcome Activities.

You may also find lots of practical information and insight on studying in the UK as an international student by visiting British Council - Study UK.

About the International Orientation Programme

Our International Orientation Programme is free for all international and EU students and has been designed to provide you with everything you need to know before and during your study at Brunel including:

  • Looking after yourself in self-isolation
  • Setting up a UK bank account and mobile phone
  • Building social connections
  • Getting medical care
  • How to keep yourself safe in the UK
  • Where to get support and much more!

The September 2021 programme will be available online, allowing you to access the information in your own time, from anywhere with an internet connection.

Once you have arrived on campus (or completed your quarantine period) you'll have the opportunity to safely meet some of your fellow students, and familiarise yourself with the campus and local area with the assistance of our Welcome Guides.

If you are arriving in September to study a Foundation or Pre-Master’s course, The Brunel Pathway College will be running a separate orientation. Click here for more information.
