Welcome events and inductions

There is a lot going on over Welcome Week! Make sure you know what events you should attend for your course, as well as other activities and events that you won't want to miss from across the University.

Attend your course induction to learn about your programme, meet key people, and connect with fellow students. Understand available student services, including the Library and Careers Network Dubai. There is also a Health and Safety Induction for all students, and you must complete the mandatory online Health and Safety Canvas Course.

Explore student events during the welcome week and be sure to sign up for clubs and groups. Check out our 'what's on in welcome' page for further information on programme and service inductions, as well as student events, so you can start planning out your week!
