International student support

We give a warm welcome to all our international students who are coming to study here at Northumbria University.  Whether you are new to the UK or have already lived in the UK for a while, we are here to help you with a wide range of different issues that you might face during your time here.

To help you settle into life at Northumbria University, our Welfare, Immigration and Funding Advisers offer free, confidential guidance and support on a wide range of issues including: 

  • Working in the UK as an international student
  • Student finance issues for international students
  • Advice on opening a bank account
  • Driving in the UK
  • Enquiries about registering with the police
  • Inviting friends and family to the UK
  • Advice on other aspects of living in the UK – such as how to register with a local doctor or dentist and registering to vote
  • Travelling outside the UK
  • What to do when you lose your passport or visa
  • Other passport, visa and BRP problems

We offer a 'Meet and Greet' service for new students, where we will arrange to meet you at Newcastle Airport and transport you to your accommodation. For international parents supporting your child in their journey to Northumbria university, visit our International Parents Guide.
