Harper Adams is currently home to students from around 30 different countries. The county of Shropshire is becoming ever more diverse, particularly the nearby town of Telford, which has a well-established and respected international community. Our policy of providing a caring and supportive environment is particularly extended towards international students. We hope our personal, friendly approach, and intimate campus with its range of facilities, will ensure you feel a valued member of our community. As well as the excellent facilities and support, we offer an additional range of services for international students to help you adjust to life in the UK.

Support for international students

International students have an induction before the start of their course. This helps you to settle into your accommodation, tour the campus and locality, organise bank accounts, and register with the police, if needed. It is strongly recommended that you attend when invited. A team of staff is available to support the induction of international students and you can approach them with any questions and concerns that may arise during your time with us.

Dedicated tutors can provide English language classes, study advice and individual support. The International Student Support Manager can help with enquiries about visa renewals and working in the UK. ‘Planet Harper’, run by international students, provides a variety of social and cultural events on campus, and excursions to places of interest.
