International Student Support

Writtle University College holds Tier 4 Sponsor status, enabling us to sponsor international students to study in the UK.

We have a diverse student population drawn from approximately 40 countries which helps to create a culturally diverse community in which to learn and socialise.

We have an international outlook and are committed to attracting students from around the world to join our small international community nestled in the picturesque village of Writtle on the edge of the Essex countryside.
