Pre-Departure Briefing for EU students

Wednesday 19 July 2017

From 2pm

Pre-Departure Briefing for EU students

During this Virtual Open Day you can get more information specific to students travelling to the UK from your country. Each country has its own dedicated page on our website as well. There is also some information available on practical matters (such as what to pack and the start of university life in Birmingham).

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our beautiful campus. We understand that living and studying in another country will be a very exciting experience, but we also know that you may find elements of it challenging at times. Your first few weeks will be busy, but make sure you are aware of the services and opportunities we offer to help you get the best out of university life. You could to through this list to make sure you haven’t missed any essentials.

You can find more information on the campus and how to get around here.

We have a number of international students and alumni amongst our Postgraduate Mentors. You are welcome to ask them any questions you have about what it is like to study at Birmingham or make the transition to living and studying in the UK.
