Welcome is the chance for students to meet each other, learn about our systems, such as IT, Wellbeing, Library or Careers, and to get to know the campus and how things work.
For new undergraduate students, it is the first opportunity to start feeling part of our unique community, make new friends and have some fun with the range of activities that take place across the week and beyond.
Welcome is going to be a little different this year. COVID-19 means that the start of the academic year is likely to involve social distancing, and many of the usual activities we hold during our Welcome just aren’t going to be possible at the moment. The safety of our community will remain our top priority. Whether it is our Welcome activities for new and returning students or our teaching activity we will provide the best experience we can, whilst adhering to the regulations and safety guidelines in place at the time.
However! We are still 100% committed to doing our very best in the current situation; to make sure that all of our students feel part of our community, make connections with each other, and get all the information they need to make a flying start to the academic year. Whether it’s online or in person, the best thing about UoB Dubai is the people, so we can’t wait to see you in September!
