Guide for parents

The role of the International office

Four people are sat on a bench on the Edge Hill University campus. Three of the people are looking at the other person who is wearing a purple high-vis jacket and talking to the group of people.

Alongside general queries and enquiries the International office can help students with general support.

Some things we can help you and your student with are:

  • Opening a bank account
  • Obtaining a letter to confirm they are enrolled as a student at Edge Hill University
  • Travel and country information and advice
  • Visa and immigration advice
  • Urgent phone calls to family, home or bank back home
  • If they are feeling unwell or homesick and want to talk to someone

Our guide for parents below gives answers to common questions. If you have any other questions or concerns please contact
