We have prepared a comprehensive pre-departure guide (PDF) to help you get ready for an experience of a lifetime. This guide provides practical pre-arrival and induction information to help students coming from outside the UK plan their move to St George’s. It includes guidance on travelling to St George’s, opening a bank account, living in the UK and the university’s support services. It also has useful information about daily life in the UK (for example, British culture, UK celebrations and public holidays) and provides some practical advice from current international students to help you settle in.
There is a lot of information to take in, so take your time and read carefully!
The university has also put together an international support package to assist incoming international students in travelling to St George’s during these turbulent times.
For students who have obtained a Student visa, the section on enrolment includes information on collecting your BRP on arrival and registering with the police.
