Pre-arrival information


Due to the high demand for student halls there are unfortunately very limited places. Applications must be made through the Student Centre.

For exchange students who are not successful in obtaining a place in Halls, the Student Centre has a range of information on various properties for rent in the private sector. They can be contacted for advice using the following contact details:

Visa information

As an undergraduate exchange student there are many things you will need to think about before you arrive in the UK. If you're a non-EU student one of those things is your visa. Please read through the information from the Student Centre carefully. The Bayes Student Exchange Coordinator will be able to provide the necessary documentation for you.


Students joining Bayes full-time for more than six months are eligible to receive free NHS hospital treatment in England.

If exchange students are with us for less than six months, we advise students to organise private health insurance from their country to cover the length of their studies in London. We have a nurse led Health Centre on campus that can help with general health queries.
