To help you prepare to travel to the UK, we provide information which will help to:
Most international (non EEA) students need a visa/entry clearance to study in the UK. You can self-assess online at the UK Government's Home Office website to see if this is relevant to you.
European Economic Area (EEA) nationals do not need a visa or entry clearance to study in the UK. If you are an EEA national you can travel into the UK using your passport or national identity card.
Further information is also available through your local British Embassy or High Commission. Find out more about applying for a UK visa.
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.
The Overseas Students' Orientation Programme provides information on:
The OSOP is an amazing opportunity to meet other students and make new friends, attend evening social events and go on a variety of tours of campus, and the local area.
We will also tell you about our extensive social programme, which includes trips to London, Bath, Stonehenge, Oxford and much more!
