Support for international students

We understand the many opportunities and challenges that being an international student presents for your future career plans and offer tailored support to our students from overseas to allow you to build on your studies here.

So whether your future career plan is to look for work or further study in the UK, in your home country, or another country, we can support you to investigate all of the options.
