Malaysia's pre-departure briefings
Your chance to attend British Council’s pre-departure briefings
Are you planning to study in the United Kingdom? Join our pre-departure briefings to set you on the road to success!
Before you begin your UK studies, there is a lot to think about and prepare – but help is at hand. The British Council's pre-departure briefings are targeted at students who are embarking upon their UK study for the 2016 intake.
Our pre-departure briefings will be joined by representatives from the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) so you will be able to get your questions on applying for your student visa answered.
There is no admission fee to attend this event hence seats are limited. We encourage you to pre-book seats as we would not be able to seat walk-ins. We will disable the online booking once we've reached the maximum capacity for each venue. Note: please do not make more than one reservation to enable other students a fair chance to book their seats.
UK-bound students may bring a guest i.e. family, spouse/partner, friend
|Sat, 30 July||2pm - 4pm||Disted College, Penang|
|Sun, 31 July||2pm - 4pm||Renaissance Hotel Kuala Lumpur|
If you are unable to attend our pre-departure briefing, you may read The Magazine for useful articles on packing essential items, weird and wonderful student societies, unusual Freshers' Week traditions, and ultimately download the PDF version of First Steps booklet from our web page.
