International Student Support

The International Student Support team is a team of eight advisers based in the International Office and includes experts on immigration and welfare. We are employed to look after all international students before, during and after their time at Coventry University.

From the moment your aircraft touches down we’re here to support you. One of our team will meet you in the arrivals area of London Heathrow Airport (LHR) or Birmingham Airport (BHX), and a coach will bring you directly to the campus.

The first few days, and weeks, in a new place can be exciting – however we understand you might feel slightly nervous. Don’t worry. We recognise that it’s important to give you a good start, and our International Welcome Programme is designed to support every facet of this new experience. We will arrange social events and provide an opportunity for you to familiarise yourself with the local environment, make new friends, and register with essential services.

Based in the Student Centre, the International Student Support team will continue to provide you with help and assistance throughout your time at Coventry.  Whether you just want to chat, have questions about employment regulations, accommodation immigration, finance or travel they are there to help you.
