International Orientation

It's an exciting time, but we know it can also be demanding moving to a new country and settling in. That's why we do all we can to make you feel welcome when you first get here, with a programme of social events, comprehensive presentations and informative workshops so you can make friends and get to know your new home a little better.

We encourage all EU and International students to attend one Welcome presentation - these take place on Friday 14 and Sunday 16 September and cover all the essentials for beginning your studies at Manchester. 

We also have a selection of optional workshops focusing on various aspects of student life in the UK, from money and banking to reaching your academic goals and staying safe. We recommend you browse the talks on offer and plan to attend the ones most relevant to you. 

Finally, don't forget our Global Village Fete on Saturday 15 September between 10am and 3pm next to University Place. With stalls, music, performances, crafts, talks and tours there will be something for everyone - bring your family, friends and flatmates along!
