  • An airport pick-up and international welcome week when you first join us
  • Free in-sessional English courses to support your development as you study
  • Academic support services to help you achieve your highest potential whilst studying with us
  • Career guidance and support services to ensure you are in the best position to gain employment when you graduate from the University

Here at the University South Korean students enjoy the community feel of each of our campuses and the opportunity to experience UK life whilst studying in a safe, secure and supportive environment. We have found that our students from South Korea really make the effort to integrate into life here at the University which benefits both them and the experience of all our students.
