Helping you every step of the way 

Your first week with us is an important one: you’ll get to know your new classmates, teachers and support staff!  Our friendly Student Services team will welcome you and be on hand to help. They understand the challenges that come with studying abroad, and provide a dedicated network of support. From visa and immigration advice to getting settled in the UK, you're in safe hands.

The induction program during your first week will also cover:

  • how to register with a doctor and dentist 

  • information on the British legal system.  

Your teachers at INTO Manchester are friendly, knowledgeable and care about your progress – so they’ll be more than happy to advise if you need any help. At the beginning of your program you’ll meet your Academic Advisor, who you can approach with any academic questions or personal issues throughout your time with INTO. They’ll help you settle in, monitor your academic progress, and can refer you for additional support if you need it.

You will also benefit from Link Tutors at The University of Manchester, who will support your progression – they're available for appointments in the Center, and they'll help with choosing a degree, the application process, writing a personal statement and more.

Once you progress to your chosen degree, The University of Manchester's International Student Support team will look after you. They’ll offer support and guidance to help you settle into life at university.
