Welcome to Chichester International’s Online Preparation Guide


Welcome to the University of Chichester’s Be Prepared website! 

Welcome to our online ‘Be Prepared’ resource, designed specifically to assist international students in feeling prepared and confident as they embark on their journey as University of Chichester students. Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive guide that addresses all your questions and supports you until you arrive in the UK.

Within this guide, you’ll find a wealth of information covering various topics such as identifying the visa that suits your needs and making friends once you’re here. If you happen to have any unanswered questions, please feel free to reach out to our Chichester International Advice team directly. We are always delighted to provide you with any assistance you require.

If you are coming to the UK through our International Short Programme Unit (ISPU), please stay in touch with your sponsor and the ISPU stem. The staff at ISPU will make sure that all the arrangements are made for your arrival. 

We eagerly anticipate your arrival at the University of Chichester and can’t wait to welcome you to our community!
