Univ welcomes all of our new students to the start of their first term. We are very glad that you are here.
The purpose of our Welcome Week is to introduce students to academic life at Univ, to introduce some of the people who will support you during your time here, and to provide an opportunity for you to start building new friendships.
This page draws together the timetable for your Welcome Week this year, along with online videos and information.
Owing to current restrictions, Welcome Week this year looks rather different but we hope that it will still offer many of the opportunities that new students expect. We regret that there will be fewer in-person gatherings and meetings, and you will see that your timetable includes a number of scheduled online live events. Please note the times of these events carefully and look out for emails providing further information and a link to each event. In addition, this page includes videos to view in your own time during Welcome Week and further information on services we offer.
We very much hope that you will enjoy your time at Univ.
