We are delighted to welcome you to Queen's, even though for many of you this has and will be a virtual experience, until restrictions ease. We hosted our first virtual welcome event on Monday 12 October, with a live welcome from Professor Emma Flynn and presentation delivered by Francis Guinane, followed by 'Live Virtual Stands' hosted by colleagues from across the University. Due to current restrictions, we will continue to host virtual events, until face-to-face sessions can be facilitated safely.
This page has been updated to include the recordings taken of the Welcome and Introductions on 12 October, and the live stand links have been replaced with links to information or webpages that the hosts feel would be of use to new staff, enabling you to review the services promoted at the virtual event and assisting you in becoming more familiar with Queen’s.
If you have any queries in relation to this or future events, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
