International Student Orientation

All new international and EU students must attend International Student Orientation. The sessions provide important information about UWE Bristol and the Bristol community, and are also a great way to meet other new students.

Our main International Student Orientation sessions took place on Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 September 2017. You can view a selection of images taken during the sessions on the UWE Global Facebook page.

Mini orientation sessions

If you missed our main sessions or still have questions, please attend one of our mini orientation sessions. These mini sessions will take place on Wednesdays on 20 and 27 September 2017 and will include information about our visa service, money advice, registering with a doctor, opening a bank account and more.

Date: Wednesdays on 20 and 27 September 2017
Time: 10:00–12:00
Place: The Community Hub (The Octagon), Frenchay Campus

Welcome Lounge

If you have arrived at UWE Bristol after the Orientation, our Global PAL Leaders are here to help you to settle in. PAL Leaders are current students who once were new students and can assist you with finding accommodation, using UWE Bristol online systems or answer questions regarding life at the University.

From 19 to 29 September 2017 at 10:00–13:00 and 14:00–17:00
