Please read the information below before booking your place:

  • Transport will be in the form of coaches so you will travel with other students.
  • Please select the coach you would like to travel on. There are different departure times available below.

  • There is no cost for the coach service for arriving students.
  • Please allow 2-3 hours between your scheduled flight arrival time and coach departure time. This will allow you sufficient time to go through Security and collect your luggage.

  • Once you have booked your place on the coach, you will receive an automated confirmation. Approximately one week before your journey, you will receive a more detailed email about the shuttle service.
