International student drop-ins

Run during the academic year, the International Student drop-ins are designed to help international students with any questions they have about life at UCL.

International Student drop-ins

The UCL International Student Support team will hold drop-in sessions for international students during the 1st and 2nd terms of the 2023/2024 academic year.

In these drop-ins, a member of the International Student Support team will be available via video chat to help you with a wide variety of issues you may be having regarding life at UCL or life in the UK. Whatever your question, please feel free to ask and we'll do our best to help you.
