Information you need before you arrive

As a new student joining us at the University of Huddersfield - London, you may have some questions about what it's like to live and study in the UK.

You should arrive at the Campus (Bounty House, Greenwich, London SE8 3DE) ready to start your Induction Programme.

During your first week with us, we organise events and activities to help you settle in. This is called ‘induction’. This includes practical things like registering for a doctor as well as a tour of the campus, town and activities to help you make friends.

When you confirm an offer at the University of Huddersfield- London, the next step for most students is to apply for a visa.

Depending on the course you are applying for, and your country of residence, there are different visas you can apply for. Take the UK visas questionnaire to find out which type of visa you need.

It won’t take you long before you are accustomed to your life here and have made new friends. To help you settle in, we will organise events to help you meet your course mates and build friendships.

We know that moving to a different country to study is exciting, but it’s normal to feel a little bit nervous too. We will do all we can to help you settle in to living in the UK. To get an insight into what you can expect from life in the UK, visit Education UK from the British Council.

London has great food and amazing markets. You will never run out of restaurants and cafés to spend time in. Borough Market is near London Bridge and you'll find fresh produce and live cooking demonstrations. Closer to the College, Greenwich Market is open daily with delicious food stalls, as well as fashion, crafts and antiques.

It is essential all international students have the protection of personal insurance while studying in the UK. You can take out our StudyCare Insurance Plus cover or arrange your own.

StudyCare Insurance Plus is specifically designed for international students’ needs during your studies at the International Study Centre and, if required, after progressing to your university.

Our insurance cover is available for up to 12 months or up to 24 months, allowing you to choose the policy length that suits you. Both lengths cover travel to the UK, loss of personal possessions as well as providing health and medical insurance.

Frequently asked questions on joining us on campus

How can I guard against fraud?

From time to time, scammers may specifically target international students by pretending to be the Police, Visa issuing authorities, education agents or other regulatory bodies. It is important to be able to recognise common signs of fraudulent activity and know what to do if you come across it. The best way to protect yourself from any kind of fraud is to protect your passwords, regularly update your devices with the most up to date security software and never share your bank details or transfer money to an account you don’t recognise.

Make sure you tell a teacher or a member of student services team if you receive a suspicious message or phone call, or if you have any concerns about fraudulent activity. It is important that you let us know as soon as possible so that we can help to protect you and other international students in case they are targeted in the same way.
