New students pages

The new students site includes everything you need to know about starting University, with a handy checklist of tasks to help you through your first term.

Welcome to all new students

Congratulations on securing your place to study with us. We wish you every success in your forthcoming degree programme and we look forward to working with you over the coming years.

I am the Associate Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education for the Faculty and I am looking forward to opportunities to meet with you over this academic year. Across the Faculty all staff have been working hard to prepare for the beginning of term to develop the best and safest possible educational experience for you.

We are keen to receive feedback on your academic experience through SSLCs and via module tutors to help us understand what works best and how we can refine and improve our ways of supporting your university experience.

An important part of the transition to University will be the sense of community, the friends and relationships we create. We must be kind and patient, reflective and supportive of each other whilst developing channels for discussion, debate, and working together. Despite things looking more positive with regards to the pandemic, these are still uncertain times and we hope that the skills you will develop through your learning journey with us will equip you well for the challenges ahead.

This website will, in due course, point you towards subject-specific information for Freshers' Week, but in the meantime please make sure you familiarise yourself with the main University website for new students.

We will be updating this page regularly as new details of induction and welcome activities are released. We're also working within Government guidelines meaning information and activities may change as that guidance changes as well.
Please ensure you check back here frequently for updates.
