What's on in Welcome

Your 2021 university experience starts here.

Our Welcome events are organised in three core strands:

  1. Your subject events: academic induction and welcome (mostly compulsory)
  2. Main University events: ticketed events and drop-in activities (optional)
  3. Students' Union events: your entertainment and exploration activities (optional)

Please check when your academic induction events are taking place before booking onto other sessions.
