Vice-Chancellor's Welcome Address and College Welcome Webinars

The Vice-Chancellor's Welcome Address and College Welcome Webinars are your formal welcome from the Principal of the University, the President of the Guild of Students and senior colleagues within your College. 

The Vice-Chancellor's Welcome Address is provided for all new undergraduate students. Your Vice-Chancellor's Welcome Address is an important part of your Welcome to the University.

In 2020, these events were run virtually to enable as many students as possible to attend. They will be split into two components to enable them to take place online effectively.  

Vice-Chancellor's Welcome Address

The Vice-Chancellor's and Guild of Students President's Welcome Address was broadcast on our online channels (YouTube and Facebook) at 10:00 on Monday 21 September for the beginning of Welcome Week. You can watch the recording below.

College Welcome Webinars with Q&A

The Vice-Chancellor's Welcome Address was followed by specific College Welcome webinars which gave the opportunity to hear from some of the distinguished academic staff working with you as you study at Birmingham, as well as gaining an understanding of current students' experiences in your College.
