Before you arrive
We are so excited to welcome you to ARU College, it’s an exciting time in your life and like most things, you will need to plan ahead, and get yourself organised.
Applying for your visa
Please make sure that you apply for your visa well in advance of your move to the UK. To travel and study in the UK for longer than six months, you must apply for a visa under the Student Route. To find out more on how to make a successful visa application, read our handy visa guide.
Book your flight and transfer
Make sure you check what day your orientation programme will start to ensure you don’t miss out on any of the great welcome activities organised by ARU College’s fantastic student support team. All arrivals into the UK must continue to complete a passenger locator form.
Check out societies
Joining a club or society at university is a great way to meet new people and get involved in all that ARU has to offer. There’s a wide range of societies to get involved with from the Nigerian Student Society all the way through to the Law Society. Check out the student union to find out more.
