International Student Orientation Programme

If you'll be arriving outside the University's main arrival periods (September and January) you'll find some useful information on arriving in the UK and Plymouth

The International Student Orientation Programme is on 10 – 16 September 2018

To make your journey a little easier we offer a Coach Meet and Greet service from Heathrow Airport. Our coaches will leave Heathrow at 10.00am and 12.00noon on Monday 10th September and Tuesday 11th September 2018. Booking now open.

To give you an idea of what we offer during our orientation please see our programme from September 2017.

We strongly recommend that you join the programme to give you the best start possible to your experience in Plymouth and, most importantly, for your academic success.
