International Students

Bowland College is a diverse community and we have students choosing to join us from all over the world. As an international student we hope that you will enjoy all that Bowland has to offer as we aim to make your university experience an enjoyable one.

Deciding to study in another country can be exciting and daunting, and you will experience a lot of changes and potential differences, such as weather, food, customs and teaching methods. Life at Lancaster provides key information on important practical issues for when you arrive and the Learning Skills and Development Services can help you to prepare for academic study in the UK.

You can connect with other international students  coming to study at the college by joining the International Facebook Page. Our International Student Rep, Jerry will be monitoring the page and will be happy to answer any questions that you have, or you can email Jerry directly.

It is perfectly normal to experience some culture shock and homesickness and we are available to help support you through this transitional phase. If you do experience difficulties then please contact a member of staff or a member of the welfare team who will be able to provide support and ways to help you feel more at home.
