We offer a comprehensive programme of orientation events to help international students settle in following their arrival in Manchester.
Our next Orientation programme will run from Sunday, 21 January until Friday, 26 January 2018. More information is available here.
Our Orientation programme offers practical advice about starting your life and studies at the University with valuable information to introduce you to the city of Manchester. The Welcome social events offer fun and informal opportunities to meet other students and are especially useful for our new arrivals on study abroad, worldwide exchange or Erasmus+.
Student ambassadors are available to support you and answer any questions you may have.
