Advice for international students Advice for international students

The University has a dedicated International Student Advisory Team (ISAT) to support all international students; we provide advice and guidance whilst you are studying at UEA on a wide range of issues.

ISAT Advisors are available for confidential one-to-one appointments to discuss any issues or challenges you may face, to ensure you can make the most of your time at UEA. 

There are a number of online and paper guidance sheets available to assist with some common questions asked by international students.

ISAT also organises a number of activities and opportunities throughout the year, enriching your experience whilst in the UK.

More than just advice and support

"I just wanted to let you know that I made it home and safe and sound without any complications. I also wanted to thank you for all your help for the past week after my accident. From contacting the necessary parties, to finding someone to accompany me at the airport; thank you very much. I would not have been able to make it home smoothly without your help.


Aside from the accident, you should know that I had a wonderful time at UEA. It was such a great experience."  R. (December 2015)
