International Students

The College of Science offers a warm welcome to International and EU students. Students from 80 countries around the world have chosen to study our undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees.

We have a global academic staff coming from countries including China, India, Italy, Netherlands, Pakistan, Poland, Russia, Spain, USA and Ukraine.

It is a big step to move to another country to study and the staff within the College of Science work closely with staff from other Departments across the University to ensure that you receive the best academic and pastoral support to enable you to truly enjoy your time with us. We have members of staff who will help you with everyday queries and problems and you will be assigned a personal tutor who will help you with academic queries such as choosing the right modules for you, advice and support for assignments and exams and more.
