Welcome Activities

Welcome is the main induction and orientation period for new students starting programmes in September or January.

Welcome Week takes place 25 - 29 September – 2023 

Activities start the week before the start of teaching. We will be running activities for new and returning students to help you settle in and make friends, including information about clubs, societies, the local area, and the free money & guidance, inclusion, and wellbeing support available to you throughout your studies.   

There will be lots of activities taking place across the week including morning, lunchtime and evening events to cater for all students living both on or off campus ranging from karaoke evenings, coffee tastings, quiz nights, social sports and more. We acknowledge that Welcome Week can feel overwhelming and have therefore introduced smaller group activities as well as some ‘sober social’ events.
