Pre-arrival virtual coffee morning event for students living at home

The Division runs a pre-arrival coffee morning event for students who live at home or commute to campus. There may be other events organised by the University.

The event is for nursing and midwifery students, and takes place on Thursday 15 September from 10am to 12pm. It is aimed at helping you make contact with peers and gain support with issues relating to living off-campus.

To help us with organising the event, we will be asking you to register for this event and the link will be in your welcome letter, which you will receive later this month.

Registration is open until Tuesday 13 September. We will then send out a link to join the event online.
