Starting on Monday 5 October, there are three weeks of Welcome activities for you to take part in. These events will help you find your way around the Department and the University. We encourage you to take part in as many as you can as they are a great way to help you settle into life in Manchester.

Your studies will start with a "Postgraduate induction talk", online at 11am on Monday 5 October, so put this in your diary now. You will be emailed details about how to join.

There will also be a range of University sessions you can book onto over these weeks.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Manchester.
