Extra information – What to expect during your journey:

  • Most importantly, it is important for you to pack warm clothes for when you get to the UK as the weather can get very cold and unpredictable.

  • Health and Travel insurance might be necessary so be sure to check if it is a requirement. There are companies who work specifically on international student insurance that you may be able to contact and get more information from. Also contact your College/University and find out if they have any information regarding insurance policies for students.

  • Check your baggage limit with the airline you will be flying with as most airlines charge for excess baggage.

  • When boarding connecting flights there can be long queues so be sure to be extra early and give yourself more than enough time to check in and pass through security control.

 

 

Extra information to keep handy for when you arrive in the UK:

  • Once you have arrived in the UK, if you need any help, go to an official tourist information office or information desk. You can find these in the airport.

  • It is important to keep with you the contact details (telephone numbers and address) of your new school, college or university and preferably a name of a staff member that you can talk to directly, this way you contact them as soon as possible if you need to.

  • Be sure to keep at least £200 in travellers’ cheques so that you have money on you for food, public transport and customs charges if needed. You will also have access to money exchange services and ATMs to withdraw cash in British Pounds Sterling as long as you have compatible credit or debit cards.

 

 

Once you have arrived at the UK Airport:

  • Have your passport ready in your hand.

  • Complete the landing card that will be handed to you on the plane if you’re a non EEA national. You can also find them in the immigration hall.

  • If you have a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number, make sure to bring proof of this number with you.

  • Bring information of your course of study.

  • If you have any official medical documents, recent bank statements and information about your accommodation (where you will be staying) in your hand luggage, as this may be asked to be shown.

  • Remember that you are not allowed to bring any dairy products or meat from outside the European Union. There are some restrictions on fish, eggs, honey, fruit, vegetables and plants. If you need any information on this matter visit this website: www.gov.uk/bringing-food- animals-plants- into-uk/food

  • Make sure you check the restrictions of limits of gifts, alcohol and tobacco that you can bring to the UK. This information can be found on www.gov.uk/duty-free-goods

  • Check your duty free limit as you will have to declare and pay duty at customs if you go over the given limit, otherwise they are allowed to take your items away from you.

  • It is very important that you do not bring any weapons, counterfeit goods or illegal drugs etc. as some items are restricted and will require a type of permit. If you want more information on this then you can visit the following website: www.gov.uk/duty-free- goods/banned-and- restricted-goods

  • If you have more than €10,000 or the same amount in a different currency and you are travelling from a country outside the EU, then you must declare this money.

  • DO NOT give any false or misleading information.

  • Once you arrive at the airport, if this is your final destination then make your way to ‘Arrivals’ by following the signs. If you have a connecting flight then follow the signs that say ‘Flight connections’.

  • Following the ‘Arrivals’ signs will take you towards passport control. At this point there are separate queues for passport holders from the ‘UK’, ‘EEA’, ‘Switzerland’ and ‘All other passport holders’. Once this immigration stage is complete you will need to go to the next stage.

  • Next you will need to follow the signs for ‘Baggage reclaim’ to collect your luggage. You will need to look at the screens to find your flight number and that is where you will find your luggage that you need to collect and take with you.

  • The next and last stage is passing through customs control. At UK airports there are usually 3 options;
    - A blue channel if you are coming from a different airport within the EEA.
    - A green channel if you are travelling from outside the EEA and you do not have anything to declare.
    - A red channel if you are travelling from outside the EEA and you do have goods to declare.

  • Be sure to check online to find out what needs to be declared so you are read

 

 

Transport from the Airport:

The UK has more than 40 airports, coaches, ferries and railways so public transport is very commonly and easily used.

It is possible that your school, college or university may be able to pick you up from the airport. However just to be on the safe side it might be a good idea to ensure that your arrival is in the daytime when public transport is more frequent and you will not have to wait too long to get to where you need to. Another benefit is that you can book your tickets for public transport in advance if you want to as you can get cheaper deals this way also.
