Group of students

Welcome week

Join us between Tuesday 20 and Monday 26 September 2022 and get ready to start your studies with us

Welcome week is taking place during the week before our term starts. It’s about preparing you for the start of your studies, with an induction and the chance to meet your fellow students and staff and to complete some essential enrolment, administrative and mandatory governance tasks.

Additionally, there are some fun and friendly virtual welcome events for everyone to attend if they would like to do so. You will be sent full details about welcome week closer to the start of term.

Welcome week in 2022 is between Tuesday 20 and Monday 26 September 2022.

Timetable

Please find below the induction timetable, which will include an induction with the library and Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) teams.

All induction sessions for our London-based courses, unless specified, take in person at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust building (London, NW3 5BA).

If your course requires a DBS check, please bring your DBS documentation with you on the day of your course induction. All students who require a check will need to speak to a member of staff face to face, even if you are a member of the online update service. Your DBS times will be listed below as part of your induction timetable as a timetabled slot. You can attend at any time during this time slot; DBS appointments will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes.

Please look for your course and note the date and time of your induction. If you can’t see your course listed below, we have some courses that have their induction outside of welcome week – please see the details below the tabbed section.

Use the tabs above to view daily timetables throughout welcome week.

Please note: The induction sessions which were originally scheduled to take place on Monday 19 September will now take place on Monday 26 September due to the Queen’s funeral.
