Frequently Asked Questions
You will have lots of opportunities in induction week to meet the people on your course. Your programme induction sessions will include activities which will let you interact with lots of different people. Make sure you swap contact details with people who you’d like to get to know more! As you’ll see from the Welcome Week timetable, there are plenty of opportunities to meet people within your programme, School and across the University. Once teaching starts, you will have even more formal contact hours where you’ll be mixing with lots of other students – don’t be afraid to suggest meeting up for a coffee online or with social distancing, or sticking around for a chat online after lectures; this is exactly how things work in-person! If you’re living in University accommodation, you will also be surrounded by other students and will have every opportunity to make friends.
When you start University you will be allocated an Academic Mentor, usually a member of teaching staff from your programme. They will contact you via your University email to arrange regular meetings throughout the year, and will be able to support you with a range of queries including; signposting to pastoral support, academic guidance, employability and more. You can find out who your mentor is and their contact details by logging into your individual Intranet page, under Course Details > Course Contacts.
You will meet many of your lecturers during the induction programme put on by your programme. Lots of the planned activities will help you get to know your lecturers and find out a little bit about them. You will also meet your Academic Mentor during induction week or soon afterwards. Your mentor will oversee your academic progress throughout your degree and help to guide you through your studies. Once teaching starts, in addition to timetabled teaching, your lecturers will hold regular office hours when you will be able to contact them to discuss questions or concerns – or even just to have a chat about something interesting you talked about in class!

There are a vast range of sports and societies on offer - from Rugby to Robot Wars, Baking to British Sign Language, Tea to Tree, Dance to Dead Writers... there’s something for everyone! Academic subjects also have their own student-led societies who play an active role in organising activities linked to their subject area.
