    Hi I wanted to ask if the Welcome Week is also available to EU students?
    On the homepage it says "international (non UK/EU) students" but the description says that it's supposed to be an introduction to british culture and to Nottingham.
    Shouldn't that apply to EU-students from outside the UK as well? What about the coach pick up service?

    Thank you in advance

    You pay the same as UK based undergrads, EU law requires you are treated the same as UK people, therefore why should you be eligible?

    Thank the EU for it.

    I understand the point about not technically being a international student in the fee-paying sense, but don't really see why you can't attend International Welcome Week, given that the cultural differences, flight->campus transport, and making friends issues still apply.

    Not allowed to post contact information on the forums but there's an email address you could email in this PDF and see what they say? http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/internat...tions-2014.pdf
