International Digital Open Day
Welcome to the University of Hertfordshire
We don't want you to miss out on the benefits of attending a University of Hertfordshire event, which is why we've made everything you might need online.
We’ve listened to your feedback, so as part of our Digital Open Day, you will:
- hear talks from our academics
- find out about the amazing student experience here at Herts
- take a look around our accommodation and facilities
- chat with our current students and in-country managers
- find out more about Hatfield and the wider county.
So, explore our Digital Open Day – we cannot wait for you to join us to study overseas at the University of Hertfordshire.

Your CAS and Visa
We join Christie from the International Student Support team to talk you through everything that you’ll need to know in regard to your visa and CAS so that you can join us here, at the University of Hertfordshire.
Starting at Herts
Alongside your academic studies, the University invests lots of resources into your student experience. Every year for September and January entries, to help you settle into life at the University, we run a free Orientation Programme for our international students. It's a great way to make new friends and meet people from across the globe.
The video below shows footage from previous Freshers and Orientation Weeks. Due to Covid-19 and social distancing measures being in place, the Orientation Programme for the 2020/21 intake was centred around online activities, giving students the chance to begin connecting with other digitally. You will be able to take part in these digital events even if you are required to self-quarantine on arrival to the UK.
Herts and Beyond
Thanks to our excellent transport connections, it is easy to explore the towns and cities of Hertfordshire and beyond.
