How to study in the British Academic System

When you get to the UK as an international student, studying may seem very different to studying at home. The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) provides relevant information for you to succeed in your studies in the UK. It is a must read for any new international student.

Stay Safe Out and About

  • Go out with a group of friends, and make sure you have a plan for getting home
  • Don’t leave your drink unattended
  • Ensure your mobile phone has enough charge to last the night
  • Use only licensed taxis, with the proper signage
  • Be aware of how much you’re drinking – be sure you remain able to enjoy yourself without being unable to look after yourself
  • Keep an emergency £10 for unexpected events – for example, if you lose your purse.

British Council Guides

The Safety First Guide aims to make your visit to the UK safe and enjoyable. It highlights some of the safety and security issues you will need to be aware of, offers sensible advice and lists organisations to contact if you need help.

The Creating Confidence Guide  is designed to help you prepare for your stay in the UK and give you practical advice about living and studying in the UK.

Biometric Residence Permit

A Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) is a document in the shape of a credit card issued by the Home Office and provides evidence of your immigration permission (also known as permission to enter or remain). If you arrive in the UK with a 30 or 90 day vignette (sticker) in your passport, you will need to collect your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) card from the designated Post Office listed on your letter within 10 days of arrival. If you are not able to collect your BRP within 10 days (for example, you are required to self-isolate for 10 days on arrival in the UK), your BRP will be kept at the Post Office for you to collect as soon as permits.

For information on collecting your BRP once in the UK, please download our BRP guide.

Police registration

The condition to register with the police is given to people of certain nationalities who come to the UK for more than 6 months as outlined in Appendix 2 of the Immigration Rules. If you need to register with the police, the condition will be printed on your 30-day vignette, or if you have been granted leave to remain following an application made in the UK, it will be on your BRP.

If you need to register, you must go to the police within 7 days of you:

  • arriving in the UK if you applied for a visa from outside the UK
  • getting your biometric residence permit if you applied to stay for longer from inside the UK

After you register

The police will give you a registration certificate. Keep it while your visa or permission to stay in the UK lasts so that you can:

  • prove that you’re registered with the police
  • tell the police if your details change
  • return to the UK if you travel
  • apply to stay for longer in the UK

Further information on registering with the police can be found in our registering with the police guide.

Students within the UK

On 5 October 2020, the Tier 4 (general) student visa was replaced with the Student visa route. You can find comprehensive information on applying for a student visa from within the UK at the UKCISA website.

In addition, you can find details about applying for a Student visa from within the UK by downloading our step by step guide here.

Smoking

All the campuses are no smoking areas. No one is allowed to smoke anywhere within the campuses, including buildings, grounds and vehicles.

This also applies to e-cigarettes and other electronic nicotine dispensing systems.

The smoking policy is enforced by security and other staff. It’s supported by the university code of discipline for students.

Reporting an accident

It’s important to record any accident in the university or in university accommodation or activities such as field trips. Report accidents through your department office or directly to ResilienceandSafety@uws.ac.uk.

First aid

There are trained first aiders on all the Scottish campuses. If you need first aid for yourself or someone else, call 0141 848 3505.

Give full details of where you are, including your campus, what the injury is and how serious it is. A first aider will come to you.

Keep calm and keep the injured person calm. Don’t let them leave until seen by the first aider. If you think that an ambulance is needed, ask for one when you request first aid.

If you’re unwell

If you or someone else is unwell, and you’re unable to get to a GP, you can call the NHS 24 helpline free on 111

Ask a pharmacy if you’re feeling unwell and need help finding the best medicine – it’s usually quicker than a GP appointment

NHS Inform has information on health conditions and tips for self-care.

Emergency

You must only use the 999 number to call the emergency services when, for example, a life is at risk, a life-threatening accident, a crime is in progress or to report a fire. The emergency operator will ask for your name, address and the type of emergency.

When it's not an emergency, but you need assistance

101 is the non-emergency contact number for any police force in England and Wales and it is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Using this number can reduce pressure on the 999 system, allowing the police to prioritise emergency calls. You should call 101 if you want to talk to your local police officer, get crime prevention advice, or report a crime that does not need an emergency response, for example:

  • your car has been stolen
  • your property has been damaged
  • you suspect drug use or dealing
  • you want to report a hate crime or incident
  • you want to report a minor traffic accident, or
  • you want to give the police information about crime in your area
