Airport Arrival Instructions
Once you arrive at the airport from the aircraft to the terminal building you will be sign posted to Passport/Immigration Control. You will be directed to the "Other nationalities" queue.
Once you are through the Customs hall, at last, you should find yourself in the Arrivals hall. At this point you may be tired from the flight. Make sure that you are vigilant over your luggage to prevent theft
Arriving at your pre booked accommodation
If you have booked LSA pick up, you will find the driver holding the name banner of yourself in the arrival Hall, Please approach the driver and confirm your identity by showing the college letter.
Obtaining Your Transport to your Accommodation:
If you wish to find your way to your accommodation, we recommend those who will be arriving for the first time to the UK to use the Black Cabs or Licensed taxis instead only.
These taxis are very common throughout the airport and easy to find. You need to proceed from the Arrivals Hall out of the building –following signs for Exit and Taxis. Once outside take a moment to check where the Taxi Queue. Make sure you know which queue has the London Black Cabs waiting. Do not get in any other type of cab! They have a tendency to overcharge and not use a direct route to the destinations. Once you have located your black cab – show the driver the address –with the address and instructions for getting to your accommodation.
Please note that it is the responsibility of the student to arrange the accommodation and arrange the pickups, college doesn't take any responsibility in that regard, however as part of our commitment to overseas students we provide accommodation, pickup and other welfare services, upon the request of the students.
