Joint honours Induction and Enrolment 17-21 September 2018

Your first week with us will be the time when you find out about the University and about studying on Joint Honours. You'll meet academic and support staff who'll be important to you during your study and you'll start to find your way around the University so that you will be ready for the start of teaching on Monday 24 September.

You should have already received a letter and a timeline for the first few weeks, along with a hard copy of the induction events happening for your 2 subjects. If you've not received your letter, don't worry.  We can send you another copy by email - contact We've asked you to keep checking back on this website because it's where we'll publish room information for your 2 subject inductions.
