General safety advice


While you're unlikely to be affected by crime as a student in the UK, it is important to take basic security measures. Health and safety in-centre is everyone's responsibility, and if you do see something that concerns you or your classmates, please report it to our reception staff who will make sure it's dealt with immediately.

At each of our centres we provide students with an emergency contact number which can be used at any time, day or night. You can also report a crime at any time by phoning 0800-555-111. This call is free from anywhere in the country. The police use this system to receive information without asking the identity of the caller.

Safety at the DCS Centre

Upon arrival all DCS students are issued with an emergency telephone number which can be used to ask for assistance at any time of day or night. Within the DCS residences, there are residential tutors who are responsible for the pastoral care of students and provide an additional source of 24-hour support.

Safety in the city

It is important to take care of yourself. Following just these few tips will ensure that you are safe in your new environment.

If walking home at night, try to walk in groups

Avoid carrying large amounts of cash on you

Report any thefts immediately

ICICI Prudental medical and travel insurance

ICICI Prudental Insurance is a comprehensive insurance policy designed for international students in the UK. Full medical and travel insurance is mandatory for all DCS students, and ICICI PRUDENTAL insurance will automatically be added to your course fees unless proof of suitable cover is provided.

Students under 18

Under the law of England, Wales and Northern Ireland, any person under the age of 18 is regarded as a child, and is the responsibility of their parents. DCS Student Services look after the welfare of all INTO students, but particularly those under the age of 18 who may need extra help and support. Our Student Services staff have extensive experience in providing pastoral care for international students, and in some cases have been overseas students themselves.

To parents of students under 18

While DCS will do everything possible to care for your child during their studies, we cannot take full parental responsibility for them. We strongly recommend that you appoint a guardian who is a resident in the UK for your child. A guardian is someone who can act in your place if there are any problems or emergencies. They will provide an added level of care for your child and give you extra peace of mind.

Guardianship options:

If you have a trusted friend or relative living in the UK who is over 21 years of age, they will be eligible to act as your child's guardian

There are a variety of guardianship agencies in the UK. You should look for one that is a member of AEGIS
