Parents' Welcome Addresses

We warmly invite the family and friends of new students to attend one of the Parents' Welcome Addresses, led by senior academic staff, 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.

The Parents' Welcome Addresses will take place in the Great Hall in the Aston Webb Building (R6 - Edgbaston campus) during Arrivals Weekend.
