Student Services - University of Manchester

At the University of Manchester, non-EU and non-UK EU students are supported by the International Office of the University and the students’ International Society. The UoM’s Study Abroad Unit (SAU) serves all exchange and visiting students. The SAU offers a single point of contact to deal with all aspects of study, both before and after arrival including academic advising, transcripts and housing for most students. It also links students to other departments, welfare and counselling services. In addition, the UoM has an International Student Welfare Officer and a full counselling service.

Every department has an academic member of staff who acts as the Erasmus coordinator or Visiting students’ officer to advise on academic matters. All new international students are automatically free members of the International Society which has an active programme of social events and trips around Manchester, the UK and the rest of Europe. The UoM has extensive student accommodation facilities and a Students Accommodation Office helping international and home students to identify housing options.
