If any of the following circumstances apply to you or your studies, we are expecting to hear from you.

Permission is needed from the College to arrive or come into residence early.  You must email the Undergraduate Admissions Office, indicating your planned arrival date and the reason for your request, which we expect to be one of the following: 

  • I have a compulsory pre-sessional or language course with a start date earlier than Saturday 5 October
  • I am an international student* and wish to arrive or come into residence after 2.00 pm on Thursday 3 October to orientate myself to the UK
  • I am unable to travel on Saturday 5 October due to religious reasons and wish to arrive and register after 2.00 pm on Friday 4 October

*International students are deemed to be those who have not previously lived or attended school in the UK.

We regret that it may not be possible to fulfill all requests, which are granted subject to room availability.

Important - if you are a student reading either Medicine or Biological Natural Sciences and have a genetic condition (eg cystic fibrosis) or are immunosuppressed, you must notify the Tutorial and Admissions Office immediately so that arrangements can be put in place when handling pathogens during practical classes.
