International Student Support

Each campus has an international support office to help answer your questions and provide you with a range of services and support while you are studying with us.  This includes information about each campus, enrolment processes, assisting with visa renewals, accommodation arrangements and airport college.  We also run comprehensive orientation programmes and through out the year you will have the opportunity to enjoy social events and functions. We encourage you to use as many of these services while you are here.

As well as contacts within University we have extensive contacts with agencies and community organisations.
