Students at Solent University have access to a variety of specialist support services. As international students, you’re bound to have some questions, and we make sure that there are teams available to best support your queries – you’ll find that help is always on hand at Solent University.
The International Advice Team
First and foremost, you will find The International Advice team within the University’s Student Hub. They’re there to support you throughout your studies and to help you get the most out of student life.
They can provide information, guidance and advice on a variety of issues including visas and immigration, life in the UK, as well as employment and careers. They are also available to help you if you have any questions prior to arriving in the UK.
International Alumni Ambassadors
We have a team of international alumni ambassadors who are here to answer any questions that future international students may have about studying at Solent University, and living in Southampton. This way you will receive unique insight into life as an international student at Solent, based on first-hand experience.
All of our international alumni ambassadors are recent graduates of Solent and you can meet this year’s ambassadors here.
If you have a question that you would like to ask our ambassadors, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll put you in contact with the team. Where possible, we will also try to put you in contact with an ambassador from your home country.
This is a central space where you can access all of the guidance and support you may need during your time studying at Solent University. Here you will find most of our specialist support services and teams.

Here you can also be provided with the following official documents:
- To whom it may concern letters
