The University of Southampton

International Office Team

We travel overseas to meet prospective students and alumni, visit foreign schools and universities, keep in contact with foreign embassies in the UK and make sure that our international students enjoy their studies and life whilst they are in Southampton. We can also advise current students who would like to participate in any of our exchange programmes with overseas institutions.

Learn more below about the International Office Team and how to contact them.

Are you an overseas visitor interested in studying with us? Find out more about our courses, entry requirements and support for international students in our university life section.
