What's on in Welcome

Welcome Week may be coming to an end, but there's still plenty of activities and support to help you settle into life at Birmingham.

Your academic timetable

Use your academic timetable to find your teaching sessions from Monday 25 September. You can access your timetable through MyUoB. Find out how to access MyUoB.

Welcome Timetable

You can continue to use the Welcome Timetable to find social and support events as you settle into the first couple of weeks of teaching.

Our Student Content Shaper Fathima lists out why you shouldn't miss out on getting involved with our Welcome Week events and activities.

Build my timetable

You will need to create an account the first time you use the timetable - it is not linked to your student account. Find out more about using the Welcome Timetable.
