International

Orientation programme - 16 September 2017

An event designed to help you settle in and make friends

Airport

We know that coming to a university in a different country can be quite a challenge, particularly at first when you experience a new culture and a new language. We appreciate that you will be both excited and nervous about arriving here and we are looking forward to welcoming you into the university community very soon. We have a lot of initial support services which you may find very helpful, from arriving through to finding your way around the campus. These services are designed to ensure your arrival is as welcoming and stress-free as possible and that you find friendly faces as you settle in.

Welcome and orientation event - Saturday 16 September

We want to meet you all at our International Welcome and Orientation Event which is especially designed for you. You will be expected to join us at this event so that you can get the most out of student life here. This event forms a valuable part of your student experience here at Teesside, so it is important to make sure that you make arrangements to arrive in time for this.

We have a programme which is designed to provide you with essential and useful information to help you settle into university life. This is a great way to make new friends and meet the staff who will support you whilst you are studying at Teesside. You will get to know the campus and find out more about studying here and living in Middlesbrough. We want to ensure that you are familiar with the practical aspects to your life as well as getting used to the campus.
