The Welcome Guide will be uploaded to this page in August 2016 and hard copies will be available to pick up on campus and in Halls of Residence.
One of the first things you will be asked to do when you arrive at the School during Welcome Week (Monday 19 - Friday 23 September 2016) 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.
The registration webpages will be updated during the summer of 2016 with information about the process and designated registration times.
Your department will hold both compulsary and optional welcome events during Welcome Week 2016 (Monday 19 - Friday 23 September).
