Meet and Greet at Heathrow
To welcome our international students to the UK, Humanities are pleased to offer pre-sessional EAP course students a collection service from Heathrow Airport in London the day before thei course begins. Students will be met at London Heathrow Airport and directed to a coach service which will take them to their accommodation in Southampton.
To book this service, please fill out the application form below. When booking your flight please arrive on the day before your course commences. The last bus service leaves at 10pm and you must book a flight that is due to arrive before 8pm in order to make use of the service provided.
You must only bring a maximum of 2 large suitcases with you plus hand luggage, if you bring more then this we may not be able to accomodate you on the coach service. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate friends or family but any persons that arrives at Heathrow with you can use the National Express coaches for their forward journey to Southampton.
If you plan to arrive after 8pm at Heathrow or on a different day to the arrival days then we suggest you book a seat on the National Express service to either the University of Southampton. The National Express coach can deliver you directly to the Highfield campus at Southampton and then you can travel to your accommodation by uni-link bus or alternatively you can take the National Express coach to the main Southampton Terminal and arrange a taxi to take you to your accommodation.
