Pre-departure Briefing for UK-bound students 2023

The Pre-departure Briefing is an annual event organised by British Council in order to provide essential information to all students who have received an offer from a UK institution for further studies.  

At the event this year, representatives from British Council, UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI), The United Kingdom-Singapore Students' Council (UKSSC), Singapore Global Network (SGN), Marsh, HSBC and Vita Student will share useful information on:  

  • preparation for travel, including finances, banking, insurance and accommodation matters 
  • the visa application process  
  • what to expect when you arrive in the UK 
  • life as a student in the UK 
  • connecting with fellow Singaporeans in the UK, on and off campus.

This year we have key partners in attendance to talk about their scholarships and career offers. You will get the chance to talk to representatives from: 

  • Ministry of Foreign Affairs
  • Ministry of Home Affairs
  • Ministry of Defence
  • Public Service Commission
