The Welcome Guide (previously the Guide to Orientation) will be available to view online from August 2015. Use the events calendar inside to plan your week and decide which of the many events to attend.
One of the first things you will be asked to do when you arrive at the School is to register for your programme. During this process you are formally enrolled as student at the School and you receive your student ID card. One hour after you have registered, the School can provide you with documentation to prove that you are a student.
For more information about this process and to find out your scheduled registration date, please visit the registration webpages.
Please remember that you will not be able to register prior to your registration date.
To find out about events being hosted by your academic department, follow the links to their web pages below.
Please note that most departmental events are compulsory. If you have any questions about these events, please contact your department directly.
These links will be updated when the information is made available by your department:
Geography and Environment
Institute of Public Affairs
Media and Communications
Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method
Due to their popularity, many Welcome Week (previously Orientation Week) events require or recommend advanced booking.
This page will be updated with booking information once the Welcome Guide (previously the Guide to Orientation) has been published in August.
