Early Arrivals and International Welcome Week

Early Arrivals and International Welcome Week 2017 has now finished.

Thanks to everyone who came along to the events.

Starting University is a big step. Moving to a new country is even bigger.

We want to make you feel welcome and happy and comfortable from the moment you arrive here. We also want to introduce you to your three new homes: the University, the City of Leicester and the UK.

Early Arrivals and International Welcome Week runs from 18 to 22 September 2017. It's a chance for you to find out about essential topics such as money, employment and health while also giving you the chance to explore our campus and meet other international students.

The events this week are aimed at students joining us from overseas but they are also suitable for any UK students who turn up in Leicester before most people get here.

Because one week isn't enough to tell you about all the great things at the University of Leicester, the week after this is our general Welcome Week for all students.


    Some events overlap so please check start and end times. But don't worry because most events are repeated throughout the week - so plan which ones you want to attend and use the booking form to secure your place
