Orientation programme

 Students at table outside

To help you settle into life at the University, we run a free Overseas Students' Orientation Programme (OSOP).

If joining the University will be your first time in the United Kingdom you may find that UK culture, customs and procedures are different to those that you're used to.

The free programme has been designed to familiarise you with all aspects of living and studying in the UK and provides you with information and advice you need to help you make the most of your time in the UK and with us here at the University of Hertfordshire.

OSOP runs prior to the start of your course and you are strongly advised to attend. Dates of the Orientation Programme are provided within the booking form.
