New International Students

If you are a new international student coming to York, here are some things to look out for:

Airport Collections – Monday 17 September

A coach service will be provided from Manchester airport for postgraduate arrival on Monday 17 September, 2018. The first coaches will leave Manchester at 09:00, with further coaches throughout the day according to demand. The final coaches will leave Manchester at 3.30pm and it will not be possible to wait for latecomers. You must allow at least 90 minutes to go through immigration control and collect your luggage, before reaching the coach.

The coaches will take approximately two hours to reach York from Manchester.

To use this service you must book a place in advance. You will be able to book your free place once you have enrolled with the University (you should receive emailed instructions for doing so by the end of August). On enrolling, you will be able to access University software, e:Vision, where you will find instructions for booking a place on a coach in the ‘Your Support’ section. The final date for booking a place is Wednesday 12 September 2018.

Please note that if your accommodation is off campus, you will need to get a taxi from York campus. Please tell a member of the York Welcome Team at the airport as we can book a taxi on your behalf. The cost will be about £7.00 and you should ensure you have sufficient GBP with you.
