We offer support and guidance for all international students from application to enrolment - as well as throughout your studies with us. Living and studying in a new country is an exciting challenge but you may find that you have questions or need support. We’re experienced at helping students and offer free, confidential advice to help you settle in and make the most of all opportunities.
Meet & Greet
Wrexham Glyndŵr University provides a ‘Meet and Greet’ service for new international students. This service is exclusive to students arriving at Manchester airport, therefore we recommend you try your utmost to fly to Manchester. The service includes meeting you at the airport and bringing you to the University. It is completely free of charge. All international students are eligible, providing arrival is within set dates.
You will need to provide travel information in advance and have your meet and greet confirmed by Student Welfare.
We’re committed to supporting our students to maximise their academic potential. We offer workshops and support sessions in areas such as academic writing, effective note-making and preparing for assignments. Our small class sizes mean that you are easily able to ask questions should you need to.
Your experience of studying in a different country will set you ahead of the rest in this competitive job market. As well as experiencing a new culture, you can further improve your language skills at our dedicated language centre. The Language Centre offers English language support and can help you to enhance your English language skills to IELTS 6.5. It also offers short courses in other languages.
Our careers service offers a range of services including one to one career advice, career information, CV writing advice, interview practice and psychometric tests. Our Zone area offers students extra-curricular opportunities including exciting projects, events, workshops and conferences to develop enterprise and entrepreneurship skills. If you are a Tier 4 sponsored student studying at degree level your visa will usually permit limited work rights during term time, usually 20 hours but you should always check your visa. If you want to earn money and gain experience while you’re here, our team can help you get a part-time job.
Run by and for students, our Students’ Union aims to make your time with us the very best it can be by organising exciting entertainment and events, organising clubs and societies, promoting your interests and providing student welfare and support for all.
Student Welfare and Faith
Our student welfare team can provide a wide range of help and support covering anything from counselling and healthcare advice to finding religious support in the area. As well as our welfare team, we have a team of student ambassadors to offer advice. They’ve been through the experience of studying overseas so they understand the challenges you’re facing.
There are catholic, pentecostal and methodist churches and a mosque within walking distance of the university. As well as our own Chaplain we also have advisors who can talk to you about issues related to your particular faith.
