Meet and Greet Service

Meet and Greet 2019

Aberystwyth University has made arrangements for international students to be picked up from Birmingham International Airport. International Office staff, 'A' team and Global Ambassador volunteers will be waiting for you to help you onto our 'Meet & Greet' coaches.  

The 'Meet & Greet' team will drop you off at your booked accommodation and help you with your luggage.  

The service will operate on Wednesday 18th, Thursday 19th and Friday 20th September 2019.  We will arrive at 10:00 am and 4:00 pm, meeting at Terminal 1, departing promptly at 11:30 am and 5:30 pm on all days. 

Please note booking for this service will open on 1st June 2019

There is a charge of £25.00 per person for this service and payment must be made online when applying.  Once fully completed you will then receive an e-mail confirmation.  Please print this confirmation out and bring it with you on the day. 

Places are limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis.  We regret that there is no refund available for this service.

Arrival instructions:  After you have made your way through immigration control, baggage reclaim and customs, look out for the 'A team' wearing bright red t-shirts standing by our Welcome banner, who will be waiting to meet you to escort you to your bus! Please note that luggage space is limited on the coaches, and we can therefore accept only two suitcases plus one hand luggage per student. 

Students using the Meet & Greet service will be able to access their university accommodation from Wednesday 18th September 2019 (costs apply).  Please remember that bedding is not provided by the university, you can order a bedding pack on-line which will be delivered to your university accommodation and be ready for when you arrive.  Information on how to pre-order a bedding pack will be available from here shortly https://www.aber.ac.uk/en/accommodation/moving-in/
