Your first week is essential in giving you the foundation you need to settle into uni and succeed in your studies.

As you find your feet you will discover lots of opportunities to meet other students, make friends and discover the local area. 

Your Course Team will put together a great induction programme so you can meet your cohort, be introduced to your modules and discover the campus and its facilities. You will be given access to Blackboard, the University’s Virtual Learning Environment providing you with all the learning materials and resources you need. So, make sure you don’t miss out!
