Dear Students and Parents,
We can’t wait to welcome you here at Peterhouse, here are a few pointers to help you out at the airport /on arrival day.
Remember for international flights you are advised to arrive at least three hours before the plane is due to depart. On the flight you are advised to sleep, perhaps bring a travel pillow, eye mask or ear plugs just in case. When nearing the UK, the flight attendant will probably bring round a landing card for you to fill in, if not you will get one at customs. On the landing card, please list your UK contact address as ‘Oxbridge Academic Programs, Peterhouse, Cambridge, CB2 1RD’.
Don’t forget that in the UK we have different sockets so remember an adapter! 🙂
At the airport…
After getting off the plane follow the route and the other passengers heading to ‘Arrivals’. At passport control there will be two lines: ‘UK/EU passports’ and ‘All other passports’, follow the correct sign and join the back of the line.
Once at the front you will be asked by the customs official why you are entering the UK and where you are staying. Don’t forget your passport control letter and your letter of consent to travel (if you are traveling alone), along with any other travel documents you may have.
After passport control follow the signs to baggage reclaim. There will be a board telling you which carousel to get your bags from.
As you walk out into the arrivals lounge, Cam Prep staff will be waiting for you in red and blue T-shirts and holding Cam Prep signs (as modelled by Scarlett and Izzy below).
After that you will be taken to Cambridge by taxi/minibus along with other Camp Prep students arriving at similar times.
We can’t wait to see you & safe journeys! 😀
