International Orientation

We will be running international orientation seminar sessions for postgraduate students close to faculty inductions. We recommend that you attend the session that is closest in time to your specific faculty induction. However, if that isn't possible, you are welcome to attend any of the three sessions we are running, which will have identical content.

When: Friday 13 January 2017, 9.00 14.00,
Where: room 2007, second floor, Frank Lampl building, Kingston Hill campus

When: Wednesday 18 January 2017, 9.00 14.00,
Where: room 5005, second floor, John Galsworthy building, Penrhyn Road campus

Sessions

Arrival with tea, coffee and pastries: 09.00

Adjusting to learning and teaching in the UK: 09.30 10.00

Methods of teaching and assessment in the UK may be quite different from what you are used to in your home country. This academic session will help you understand your new learning environment, what's expected of you and how to get the most out of your studies in the UK.

Tier 4 visas - monitoring and support: 10.00 11.00

Monitoring, police registrations, Biometric Residence Permits; what do do these all mean and what do you need to know?

Healthcare in the UK: 11.00 12.00

GPs and practice staff can help keep you well or will see you quickly if you are unwell. A GP can also refer you to specialist and community health services if you need them. This session gives you the opportunity to register as a patient with Fairhill Medical GP Practice.

Drop-in sessions: 12.00 14.00

Lunch will be provided and staff from the International Office team will be available to meet you and answer any questions you have.
