Welcome Programme Review: for late arrivers
Whilst we encourage all new International Students to arrive in time for the official Welcome Programme, we will provide a review of some of the Welcome and Orientation Programme for those students who were not able to arrive in the UK in time to attend the formal Welcome and Orientation.
Details will be provided here in September 2014.
To help you get to know other new students and settle in during your study in the UK, we run a number of trips and events for you to enjoy. We work closely with the Students' Union to organise plenty of activities. Join hundreds of other new students who have just arrived in the activities listed in our Trips & Social Activites pages.
