There are three elements to Welcome Week:
- School Induction Programme
- University Welcome Programme (Further details to follow closer to September)
- Enrolment and Registration (2 stages, first stage can be completed at home - details in your Welcome Pack, and the second stage will be completed on site click here for more information)
Welcome week is a compulsory part of your timetable and all students are expected to attend so please ensure that you are available.
Your School (which is the name the University gives to your academic department) is responsible for your degree programme and it organises activities to help you get to know other students and be introduced to the course and the facilities of the University. As part of your School induction programme, you will meet your personal tutor (adviser) and other academic members of staff who will assist you with course selection. Details of the programme, your allocated E&R slot, and appointments with academic staff will be sent to your Queen’s email address.
The central University welcome programme complements your School induction programme and provides you with the opportunity to gain more information on the range of services offered by both the University and the Students’ Union including details about sports services, clubs and societies and much more. The programme also includes a number of events led by student guides – senior students who can answer your questions.
A very important part of this central University programme is the Vice-Chancellor’s welcome address which will be held on Monday 23rd September in the Whitla Hall - your allocated slot will be included in your School Induction programme.
Teaching commences the week after Welcome Week - to view the semester dates for 2013-14 please click here
