Pre-departure briefings

Each year, staff from our International Office organises pre-departure briefings in a number of countries. Details will be sent to you if a briefing is taking place in your home country.

These sessions provide you with information to help prepare for arrival in Manchester. You can ask any questions you may have about moving to the UK and meet other students from your country who will be studying at Manchester.

Use our online pre-departure booking form to reserve your place.

We will send you our Arrival Guide before you travel to the UK. The guide provides information about coming to Manchester, including details of visas, immigration, accommodation and more.

British Council briefings

In some countries, the British Council organises briefing sessions for students coming to the UK. Contact your nearest British Council office for further information.
