International Students, welcome to your digital hub!

This page is for all students who self-define as having an international background, whether that means you have come to the UK to study or have lived in multiple cultural environments. This includes students from both within the European Union (EU) and outside of it, and those who pay both home and international fees.

This is your one-stop place to access resources, come together, connect with other international students and receive any support you may need to enhance your University experience.

Discover useful resources, support and how to get involved below.

Being an international student is an experience that presents so many positive opportunities for careers and personal development, but it is not without its own set of unique issues:

  • Hostile environment – UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) department of the Home Office require all Universities to report students for low attendance, forcing University staff to act as border guards within a system of surveillance under the hostile environment and turning our learning environments into policing zones.
  • International Student Fees – International students are expected to pay up to four times as much as UK students, despite studying the same course.
  • Increasing Visa Fees – The cost to apply for a Tier 4 student visa has consistently increased and is £348. International students must also pay a healthcare surcharge which has recently increased to £300.
