International Arrivals 2021

Welcome and Orientation Week for the new academic year will commence on Monday 27 September.

A small number of our programmes such as the Full-time MBA and PGCE programmes have earlier start dates. If you are planning to start one of these programmes, your School or department will be in touch with you directly about the arrival dates and arrangements. The date we recommend you arrive will depend on the travel regulations in place for those entering the UK from your Country at the time of your travel.
