A warm welcome to the UK

On behalf of the whole Arcadia team here in London I’d like to wish all of our new students a very warm welcome to London and to the UK.

Whether you are a first timer here or have visited the UK before I can assure you of an exciting educational and cultural experience during your time with us.  Since I joined Arcadia one year ago I have been delighted and impressed by the dedication, knowledge and skills of all the people involved in Arcadia’s programmes in the UK – and I’m sure you will be too. 

For those of you who will be studying with us in the London Center, our staff have been working hard to prepare all the elements that make up an engaging experience – finding internship placements, preparing the academic program and setting up a wide range of exciting social and cultural events to help you fully engage with this wonderful city and all it has to offer.  I’m certain you will find our Center based faculty engaging and inspirational – we have a great team here who know how to fully employ “London as classroom”.

For those of you who will be transitioning through the Center to enrol in universities in England and Wales we will continue to do our utmost to ease your adjustment to your new environment and will always be on hand to respond to any questions that arise.

We hope that after our intensive orientation program you will feel at home and ready to launch yourself into your experience but if you have any questions (there are no stupid ones – not for the first couple of weeks anyway!) just ask any of us – we are a much more friendly bunch than some of the stereotypes of Englishness might suggest!
