Arriving in the UK

To make sure your arrival in the UK goes as smoothly as possible it is a good idea to learn as much as possible about what to expect.

Welcome to Manchester Metropolitan University

This may be the first time you have lived away from your home and family and we understand that the thought of spending time in a different country can be a little overwhelming. Each year we organise a number of welcome events to help you settle in to our University and make new friends.  In the mean-time, why not start preparing for university study in the UK by familiarising yourself with UK culture and higher education through an online course developed by the British Council.

International Welcome

Our International Welcome Programme is taking place on the 12th and 13th of September 2019. It will provide you with essential information about living and studying here; there are useful information sessions and social activities to help you make new friends. The International Welcome programme will be confirmed soon.‌


As you join the University you are required to complete pre-enrolment before you can enrol online. Pre-enrolment is where we scan originals of your passport, immigration permission (visa) and the qualifications that helped you get an offer for your course (these would normally be the certificates/transcripts listed on your CAS). 

Pre-enrolment is incorporated into the International Welcome Programme.  You will receive a Boarding Pass by email in September informing you where to go.
