Your Head Start

The programme will take place over two dates.

Tuesday 12- Wednesday 13 September- Foundation year students 

Thursday 14- Friday 15 September- Applied sport and exercise science ( not including foundation year sporting students)

It will include plenty of social activities, give you a chance to meet people on your course in advance and get a taste of life at UEL on campus in our residential halls*. Students will also have the opportunity to come on a daily basis rather than stay over with us- it's totally up to you.
