Support for international students
Advice ranging from immigration procedures to cultural information about the UK is available on the two university websites, so that you will feel well prepared when you arrive.
Falmer is easily accessed by bus and train, whether you have arrived in the UK by air, sea or land. Providing you submit your housing application by the deadline, you will be guaranteed on-campus accommodation for the first year only. The first weeks of term will be full of opportunities to meet local and international students from the two universities, through parties, walks, shows, balls and much more, organised by the international support offices.
You will meet your personal tutor and the student welfare advisors, who will be your first points of contact if you experience any difficulties settling in. You will get to know your way around BSMS and have time to explore the campus and Brighton.
The universities' international students societies provide a supportive environment to help you integrate into university life in the UK. They are open to all nationalities and, together with the universities' international support offices, they arrange a diverse range of events during the year. The University of Brighton international support team can provide practical advice and support.
