The Great Start

Starting a university course is an important and exciting step in your life – and we've worked hard to make sure you can settle in here quickly and easily.

If you're about to become a full-time undergraduate with us, you'll get a personal welcome to the University during orientation week from one of our Friends of Arriving New Students (FANS) - current students who are studying your subject.

When you arrive for orientation week, our FANS will meet with you and other new students in small groups and you will plan out your first few weeks at the University. The FANS will help to make sure you don't miss any essential course-based inductions and will also run tours of the facilities, pass on useful information and plan social events.
