Study

Country visits

Representatives from the International Relations Office and our academic community regularly visit different countries throughout the year. We attend education exhibitions, visit schools and talk to prospective students and their families.

The visit schedule below gives details of where we will be over the coming year. We will update the schedule with the next round of visits at the beginning of September.

If you are already studying in the UK, our Open Days provide the ideal opportunity to visit the campus and meet staff and students.
