International student advisers
Our advisers in Exeter and Cornwall can provide much help and advice with any matter relating to your welfare throughout your studies. Our drop-in service can help with questions on issues from immigration and renewal of visas to healthcare and employment regulations. If your postgraduate study is longer than six months in duration, you are entitled to free National Health Service treatment and can register at a local health centre on or near to one of our campuses on arrival.
Improving your English
We recognise that you continue to develop your language skills after registration. The INTO Centre in Exeter offers a range of in-sessional classes, workshops and tutorials free of charge for students and spouses. At the Penryn Campus, our academic support advisers provide English support including language classes and workshops.
Representing you in student life
The Students’ Guild has an elected international students’ representative and coordinates a huge variety of clubs and societies, including international students’ societies in both Exeter and Cornwall, along with a number of other societies representing different ethnic, nationality or language groups. These can be a great way to make new friends and learn about other cultures. Followers of the main religious faiths will find a place to worship close by or on campus.
International students on a Tier 4 student visa are able to work in a part-time job for up to 20 hours per week during term-time, and full-time in the vacation. Our Career Zone provides assistance with finding part-time work and offer a wide range of services to assist in your future career plans.
We offer a wide range of services to ensure your happiness and success as a postgraduate. Full details are available on our wellbeing services webpages.
