Timetable and events

There is a lot going on over Arrivals Weekend and 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.

Welcome Timetable and course inductions

You will be able to create an account on the Welcome Timetable to find the induction sessions for your programme and explore the hundreds of exciting events for new students. You can save, edit and download your own personalised timetable. The Welcome Timetable will be updated in August 2020.

Joining us before September? Visit our New Students pages to find out about starting your studies with us.

New students

It is very important for you to attend your course induction. It will introduce you to your course and what's expected, allow you to familiarise yourself with the key people and help you to start making connections with other students. Use the Welcome Timetable to find course inductions you will need to attend and to build your own personalised timetable for the week.

All courses should have an induction programme, and most of these sessions will take place during Welcome Week. If you do not have induction events on your timetable (or if your course starts at a different time from the end of September), you should contact your School or Department directly and ask what induction is being arranged for your course.  

Be aware of what you should expect and the support available to you as you begin your studies.

Vice-Chancellor's Welcome Addresses

Welcome Addresses are designed for new undergraduate students to be formally welcomed by senior staff from the Colleges and offer the opportunity to hear from some of the distinguished academic staff who will be working with you as you study, as well as gaining an understanding of current students' experiences in your College. 

Term dates and academic timetable

The Autumn Term began on Monday 30 September, when your academic timetable will begin. You will be sent information about how to access your academic timetable ahead of Welcome.

Our key dates page includes information about semesters/terms, or you can visit the University's main term dates page to see dates for 2019/20 and future years.

Events throughout the year

The University also has lots of events taking place throughout the year - check our events page for details.

The Guild of Students also has lots of Welcome events, including Freshers' Fest and societies events, as well as events throughout the year, which you can find on the Guild's events page.
