Welcome Week 2021

Welcome Week will take place online from Monday 20 September to Saturday 25 September 2021.  You will not be required to attend the full five days but you must attend your course induction which will be held on the day you will usually attend your course.  If you are joining a clinical course, you will have to attend a clinical induction also.

Welcome Week 2021

The Trust’s Welcome Week is about preparing you for the start of your studies with an induction, the chance to meet your fellow students and staff and completing some essential enrolment and administrative tasks, as well as mandatory governance tasks

Additionally, there are some fun and friendly virtual welcome events for everyone to attend if they would like to do so - please see details below and come along to as many as you can.

Welcoming everyone

We are committed to equality of opportunity – and we aim to make sure our students and staff are treated respectfully and regardless of difference. In our clinical practice, teaching and research, we are committed to inclusivity and excellence and your learning experience will be grounded in these principles.
