Induction to your new School is an essential part of Welcome Week.

Your School induction is a compulsory part of Welcome Week.

Come and find out more about your course, meet key members of staff like your personal tutor, and meet the people you’re going to be studying with.

Your Welcome week will be a great opportunity to meet some key members of staff such as your personal tutor and give you the chance to speak with some of your fellow students who will be studying on your course with you. Some of the activities, like the Head of Department Welcome and your personal tutor meeting, are compulsory to attend as you will receive some important information to help you start your University experience.

During term the School will be organising a series of events to help you make the most of your degree and prepare you for life after your graduate. We will be giving you the chance to increase your commercial awareness, gain and share study and career skills and help you create study groups, as well as some activities that are purely for fun and give you the chance to unwind and socialise.
