Wellbeing Support for International Students

Don't be afraid to ask for help if you are feeling overwhelmed or struggling with adjusting to life in a new country. There are many resources available that can provide you with the support you need throughout your studies.

If you have any questions or concerns related to your status as an international student, your first point of contact is our International Experience team. The advisers can discuss subjects such as your visa status, BRP cards, permissions for working alongside your studies or travelling while you are a student. 

For situations which are not related to your status as an international student, there is support, information, and guidance available from the University and the Students' Union.


Where you live during your studies can have a significant effect on your wellbeing and consequently impact on how well you do on your course.



The Student Support and Wellbeing Advisers provide a confidential support service on a broad range of pastoral and welfare issues and would be happy to meet with you about any concerns that are affecting your time at the University of Worcester.
