Early Induction Days

Getting Ahead: Specialist pre-entry support for students with disabilities

Each year we arrange an early induction for those students who prefer a quieter introduction to University life. Students are invited to attend a small group induction programme at the University before the beginning of the usual Welcome Week.

Although this event is not compulsory, it may prove particularly beneficial for those who are uneasy about making the transition to a new study and social environment.

In addition to a presentation from the Disability & Dyslexia Service, there are a variety of workshops including those from the Program Advisory, Money Advice and Registry Services. 

You can also have a chance to engage with the Student Support & Wellbeing team and tutors from your course during the social events we are running. 

The early induction also includes tours of the campuses and the Hive (the university and city library).
