Welcome activities

Find out about the exciting activities you can get involved with as we welcome you to the University of Derby.

Alongside your course induction, departments across the University and the Union of Students have put together some fun activities and events that you can get involved in during January and February. It's a great way to meet new people, discover new skills and add to your University experience. 

We strongly encourage you to attend your course induction (if you have one) as a priority, as this is essential to helping you settle in and get to know your peers and academic staff. 

Below you'll find just some of the activities and events we have planned. We'll be updating this page as we get further into January so keep coming back.
