When should new international students arrive at UCL in September 2022?

Heathrow airport arrivals

It's always a difficult decision for new international students going to study in a different country...when do you arrive?

Well, we've made it nice and simple for you all.

We advise that new international students arrive between:

  • Saturday 17th September 2022 and Sunday 25th September 2022;     

Arriving at some point between these dates will give you plenty of time to settle in to your new place, start the process of opening a bank account, register with a GP (if you need to) and attend some of our orientation events before term starts on Monday 26th September 2022.

Please make sure you confirm the start date of your accommodation contract before booking your flight to the UK and making plans to arrive.
