Hello and welcome to the School of Philosophy, Theology and Religion at Birmingham. University is one of the great moments in your life and we are here to make it a fulfilling and enjoyable experience.
The next three or four years will be tremendously important to you. Every week you will be learning new things, developing as a person and as a scholar, and you will form friendships that will last the rest of your life. It is our privilege to share that time with you.
I’ll look forward to meeting you during Welcome Week and I hope that the details below will help orient you.
In the meantime, many congratulations.
