Pre-Arrival and Welcome Arrangements

  • To help students settle in, the university holds a special Welcome Week in September at the beginning of the academic year. This includes a greeting at the airport, lots of welcome events, and trips to see local tourist attractions. The Welcome Week takes place before the start of the term's lectures and seminars so students have time to relax and make friends.
  • Academic schools also host activities during Welcome Week to prepare students for their studies. Events include campus tours, themed evenings and sporting events. 
  • For students whose programme starts in January, the university will greet them at the airport and arrange a programme of welcome events for them to enjoy.
