When you join the Department, you will undertake a week of induction, split between the Department and your college and including an introduction to other areas of the University such as the Library. This takes place in 0th week of Michaelmas Term (early October).
As part of the Department induction, you have the opportunity to meet other members of your course as well as the course staff, both in sessions and socially. You will meet the teaching and administrative team, learn about the content of the course, and the department and its research portfolio and other activities. Full information about the course is made available to you via an internal web-based site, Weblearn, which you are given access to once you have joined the Department.
