Pre-Arrival and Welcome Arrangements

  • A university-wide programme of events is delivered in September and January, and individual schools run events along with Student Life and the Students' Union, for other intakes throughout the year. A range of welcome and induction events are offered, helping students settle into the academic, social and cultural life of the university.
