General Support and Social Activities

 

The International Student Advisory Service (ISAS) provides general guidance and support  and can signpost students to receive help on a wide range of issues including financial worries, adjustment or cross cultural difficulties and academic problems.

 

No appointment is needed to attend the drop-in at University House 12:30-1:30 each day. If your query requires more in-depth help, you can make an appointment to see one of our advisers.

Advice leaflets on important topics are also available on these web pages and in hard copy format from colleges and The Base, A-Floor, University House. A handbook is sent to all new students coming to Lancaster with their dependant family members.

 

Students with families

If you have a partner and/or children who will be joining you at Lancaster we extend a warm welcome to them and hope that they will enjoy their stay here. There are several ways in which they can get involved and meet new people. There is an English class for partners of international students, various family-orientated day trips, and the facilities of the University such as sports and faith groups. Find out more here.
