Welcome & Orientation:
The day is designed to give you an in-depth introduction to your life in the UK and as a UEL student. There are presentations, workshops and events covering a wide range of subjects, including visa/immigration, wellbeing and English language support, and social activities.
The day usually starts with a warm welcome from the Vice-Chancellor's Group and UEL International, as well as various introductions from important and useful services from the University such as:
We will also provide advice about living in London, including how to open a bank account, accessing healthcare, travelling around London and how to budget whilst living in one of the most exciting cities in the world.
Afternoon Social & Sports Activities:
Orientation Day morning ends with a complementary sandwich lunch and some free time.
In the afternoon you will have the opportunity to take part in range of sporting activities in our Sports Dock, or the cheesily named but surprisingly fun, Speed Friending in Students' Union Lounge.
To round off the day, we have organised a pub night in a traditional local pub night.
