International Orientation Programme

Thursday 12–Friday 13 September 2019

Bookings for our two-day International Orientation are now closed, however even if you haven’t pre booked you are very welcome to attend. Please email to let them know you would like to attend.

Our International Orientation Programme runs in Cambridge and Chelmsford. It's free and very popular.

It's organised by our International Student Advice Service, and will help you learn more about living in the UK and studying at ARU. It's also a great opportunity to meet other new students.

What does the orientation programme include?

Over two days, there will be sessions on the following areas to help you settle into your new life in the UK:

  • studying in the UK
  • working and health entitlements
  • opening a UK bank account
  • food and shopping
  • UK culture and customs
  • finding a part-time job
  • sport and social facilities
  • travel and transport.

We run campus and city tours and social events, so you can meet other students and make friends.
