Your first week


During your first few days on campus, we run a series of events to help you settle in, find your way around and prepare for university life; this is called ‘Welcome Week'.

Your guide to Induction

A group of students, carrying folders, are walking away from the canteen.

Welcome Week is made up of central and departmental orientation events. There are both formal and social activities, which provide an excellent introduction to your course and student life. You can take a look at a previous guide to get a better idea of how the week unfolds.

The Students' Union also run ‘Freshers' Week’, which offers a wide range of events to introduce you to the social and sporting side of life at the University.
