This event is now fully booked
Unfortunately there are limited places available at the Parents’ Welcome Addresses, and these events have proven to be very popular. Both events are now fully booked, but these sessions are part of a wider suite of activities available for the family and friends of new students during Arrivals Weekend. The Wellbeing Fair, Welcome Hubs, Welcome Marquee and staff associated with the attending services will all be available to answer your questions and provide you with important information that you and your son/daughter/relative may find useful. The presentation slides of the Parents’ Welcome Addresses will also be available on the Welcome website on Monday 23 September. For more information on the wider range of events available during Arrivals Weekend for our new students and their friends/relatives, please visit www.birmingham.ac.uk/welcome/events.
To be added to our waiting list for either the Saturday or Sunday Parents’ Welcome Address, please let us know by emailing email@example.com before 12 noon on Monday 9 September. Please provide your name, email address, the number of tickets you require (maximum 2) and the date you would like to attend. We will be in touch to let you know if a place becomes available.
We warmly invite you to attend one of the Parents' Welcome Addresses, led by Professor Jeff Bale (Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Education) and Dr Chris Twine (Director of Student Services), which will be held during Arrivals Weekend.
The event is designed to give the family and friends of new students an insight into university life and supply information about the services and support the University offers to its students.
Due to the focus of the talk and the capacity of the hall, the Parents' Welcome Addresses are not open for student registration. However, we warmly welcome students to either book onto the parallel campus tours that will be run by the Guild or Students or attend the Wellbeing Fair that will also be held on campus at this time.
