information for international students
Hello and Welcome!
We’re really excited to welcome you to the University of Birmingham and to our lovely city!
You should be very proud of yourself for achieving the qualifications required to study here and being brave enough to leave friends and family to live in a different country.
If you have arrived before the start of term in September we have a whole support page dedicated to international pre-sessional students, please click here.
Travelling to another country for your studies can be a daunting moment. You will find useful information below for when you arrive in the UK.
UK Council for International Student Affairs provides free advice and information to overseas students.
The International Student Team (IST) provides support and advice for prospective and current international students at the University.
