International Student Support drop-in sessions

Speak directly to a member of the International Student Support team via our online drop-in sessions (access to Zoom required).

Sessions are for quick informal queries, typically no longer than 10 minutes of advice will be given. If you have something sensitive or complicated to discuss, please email us instead.

Just click on the links below, at the time of the session, to join the waiting room of the Zoom session;

You will be admitted to the session on a first come first serve basis, so please be prepared to wait if someone is ahead of you.

If the Zoom meeting is “locked” that means the session is full and you cannot join. If this happens, you should instead contact us by email.

*Please note that drop in sessions will not be taking place on Friday 20th May 2022.
