Science and Technology enrolment and orientation

Welcome from the Dean

A very warm welcome to you from the Faculty of Science and Technology at the start of your studies at Westminster. The staff and our continuing students are delighted that you are joining us. Our community here is a large and diverse one, mirroring the population of London itself. There are students from a very wide range of countries and backgrounds, taking courses from first degree to PhD level in a great many different subjects. For that reason alone, I think you will find this an exciting place to be.

We hope you enjoy being based at Cavendish. The building and facilities here have undergone major refurbishment in the last few years. We have updated the student social space, refurbished and relocated the registry facilities, refurbished the Biosciences laboratories, expanded the library facilities, updated the Polyclinic and undergone new development to accommodate Psychology. We continue to invest in the equipment you use with our regular summer updating programme and to update your classrooms. We hope that, as students here, you will benefit from all of these facilities. We are also in an excellent location in the centre of London, with a huge variety of social and cultural places and opportunities to explore right on our doorstep.

Before you arrive, you can start to get a feel for the University and for your new course by looking on our webpages. Please ensure that you attend all the events on the orientation timetable for your course. During orientation and welcome week, there will be a programme of activities arranged for you. You will complete the important formalities of enrolment, but you will also begin working with your course tutors and tutor groups, find out about your course, your Department, the University and its facilities and meet your fellow students. I would also encourage you to join at least one of our student societies - there are opportunities to pursue interests related to your subject area or to try something new - or to do both!

Once you arrive at the University, staff will do their best to answer any questions you have, so please do not hesitate to ask.

I look forward to meeting you.

Acting Dean of the Faculty of Science and Technology
