International Student Guide
Our International Student Guide provides practical pre-arrival and orientation information to help students coming from outside the UK plan their move to Cambridge. It includes guidance on travelling to Cambridge, opening a bank account, living in the UK and the University's support services. It also has a useful glossary of Cambridge terminology and provides some practical advice from current international students to help you settle in.
Welcome to Cambridge Events
'Welcome to Cambridge' events take place around the world in August and September. Hosted by Cambridge alumni groups, these events are for new students before they arrive in the UK to help prepare for the start of studies at Cambridge. As well as receiving tips and advice from current students and alumni about what to expect during your time at Cambridge, the events provide an opportunity to meet other new students.
Additional pre-arrival information
This section also provides detailed information on healthcare in the UK and immigration requirements for students who have obtained a Tier 4 visa including collecting the visa on arrival and police registration.
Online learning tool
The online learning tool helps prepares international students for studies at Cambridge prior to arrival. It is designed for students who have English as a second language and who have not previously studied in the UK.
