Welcome Back events for current undergraduates

Information on Welcome Back events for current undergraduates in 2022.

 Induction activities will help to set out the expectations and opportunities of your programme as well as give you a chance to meet your peers and the academic team that you will be working with. If you are unable to attend any School induction events, you must let us know as soon as possible and we will make alternative arrangements.

Plan your Welcome Week schedule on the University Events app

Learn has been updated!

Learn, the online system you use to access course materials, assignments, grades and other resources, was updated over the summer. 

Whilst your courses remain the same, the update brings a new and simplified layout that is both mobile friendly and more accessible, along with updated tools such as your Profile, Activity Stream, Courses, Calendar, and Marks.  

Attend a drop-in session for a demonstration of the updated platform and ask the team any questions you may have. Please sign up to ensure you secure a place. 

A series of videos is also available to help you get to know the updated version of Learn.
