Once you arrive in the UK

Settling into life in London

To quickly feel at home, we recommend:

  • You make sure you attend the orientation events for new students - details will be forwarded once you have accepted our offer - our orientation programme is designed to help you make friends and to get to know how everything runs at ARU London.

  • Open a bank account - most students need to open an account in the UK, especially if they plan to work while they are studying. There are likely to be representatives of local banks on campus during orientation.

  • Register with a doctor.  Find your closest NHS doctors surgery.

  • Consider buying a SIM card to use with your mobile phone as using a phone that's registered in an overseas country to phone home can be expensive

  • Familiarise yourself with the London Underground - you can apply for a discounted student Oyster card (travel card) once you have registered at ARU London
