Student support

Whether you need advice on visas, have a general question about life in the UK, or simply want directions, you can ask us anything, any time.

Global support

As part of our international community, you will have access to our Global Student Support team who offer advice, organise events, and promote cultural and exchange activities. We also have a number of Global Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) Leaders who can provide support as you settle in at UWE Bristol.


We recommend that all new students take part in our Student Orientation session. Coinciding with your course induction, you will receive key information about the University, the city of Bristol, and life in the UK. It is also a great way to make friends and learn about social aspects of University life.


Volunteering is a great addition to your CV. It is also a good opportunity to meet new people whilst settling in to the UK, get out and about and have some fun, and help out in the local community.

Airport pickups

UWE Bristol offers all new international and EU students the option to use our free Red airport pickup service from London Heathrow Airport. We will meet you at the airport and take you to Frenchay Campus.

Visit the UWE Bristol website to find out more about how more about how we can support you whilst you study.
