UCLan’s International student airport collection service

August 20, 2019 1 By Stanley Isaacs


PHIL: Today we were at Manchester Airport to
collect international students who are coming to the University of Central
Lancashire. We offer a free airport collection service, and all students need
to do is go online, go to the online booking form put their details in, that comes to
us, then we wait at the arrival lounge for each of the students, we pick them up we’ve got refreshments here ready for
them to wait for the coach, get them on the coach, back to their accommodation
in Preston and make sure they’re safe and sound in Preston from their flight. CHLOE: I’m Chloe and I’m with UCLan today at the arrivals hall at Manchester
Airport. I’m here to welcome the international students, and they’re just
going to come through the doors behind me any minute now, and then we’re going
to take them to the coach station and then depart for UCLan. FRANK: I thought the airport pick-up service was great because I immediately felt
welcome – my flight was there a little bit early but I saw a red shirt and I was
like yay! JASMA: The airport pick-up service was excellent I had registered for it and I had a few immigration delays, but in spite of that
I could see the crew waiting for me so hats off to you! PHIL: We understand that it
is a very stressful time for students starting university for the very first
time more so for international students, which
is why, when an international student arrives at Manchester Airport, we have
welcome staff in red t-shirts there ready to greet them. This takes away the
stress of having to book a train book a coach, get a taxi, and at the other end
trying to find your way around Preston.
