International student support

Helping you settle in


Coming to study in a new place can be a daunting experience – which is why our Student Support team is on hand to provide advice and information on areas such as accommodation, finance, careers, local knowledge and cultural matters.

Our International Wellbeing Officer, Stephen Brunton-Davies, also arranges social events for international students. 


From a welcome reception in Freshers' Week to an orientation tour of Leeds and visits to Yorkshire attractions, the Conservatoire arranges lots of activities and events to help you meet fellow international students, get to know your way around Leeds and feel at home.
