International Orientation

We are excited to be welcoming all our international students at our International Orientation event on 24th of September 2023!

Attending the orientation event is a fantastic way to start your life in the UK, get used to university, and make friends from all over the world. In the past, those who join have fewer problems and an easier time settling into their studies. We highly recommend you sign up for this event and join us for a formal welcome in September.

All international students, including study abroad and exchange students, starting their studies in September, should join the International Orientation event.

We expect you to be in the UK during the arrivals weekend so that you can be here for welcome week, which is a compulsory part of your studies. If you are delayed due to a visa related reason, you should contact to seek authorisation for late arrival. Please note that late arrival is not an automatic right and can be rarely authorised.

If you have booked a place on our Orientation event but can’t come, please contact the Chichester International Advice team to let them know.

We will post our International Orientation presentations on the Chichester International Advice Moodle page, so that you can access the information we cover. You can also arrange to meet with the International Student Advisers when you have arrived.
