Welcome Week is for all new students and it provides a great introduction to university life. This year we are unable to stage some of the face-to-face freshers' events that new arrivals would normally attend, but we hope the combination of live and online events we have planned will make your settling in period enjoyable and informative.
This year Welcome Week is actually two weeks, to allow for staggered arrivals and late starts necessitated by the covid 19 safety measures. The welcome period runs from 21 September to 4 October.
We are aware that this year some students may not wish to come onto campus to enrol, so we have moved the entire enrolment process online. We have also arranged online versions of the welcome events that we would normally run during Freshers' Week. For those students who are happy to move into campus there will also be some face to face events, please check the Welcome Week app for full details.
Postgraduate taught student events can be found in your timetable and on the welcome week app. Postgraduate research students can find out more information here.
Enrolment for undergratuates is a two stage process, and you will need to do the first stage before you arrive on campus. For more information please click here.
Postgraduate enrolment is done online after you have received a firm offer of acceptance from Admissions, you will be sent your enrolment email from firstname.lastname@example.org detailing your University account username and password, and your student ID number which you will need to complete the enrolment.
Student ID card
To receive your student ID card you must first have completed all of the steps for Online Enrolment which will be on your student portal landing page. Find out more here.
Please make every effort to attend your enrolment during Welcome Week. However, if for any reason you are unable to attend you should have received an email to guide you through the steps. If you don’t have this enrolment email, please contact the Registry team on 020 8392 3845 who will be happy to help you.
Late enrolment will take place in the Library during the weeks of the 23rd - 27th September and 30th September - 4th October between 2-4.
Teaching commences on Monday 5 October for most programmes. PGCE students will have already started, and PGR students won’t start until October.
We realise that there is a large amount of information to digest, but we will guide you through everything you need pre-arrival. Please look out for any communications sent to you by the University. These communications will be sent to you via email, and will require you to complete a number of steps before you arrive on campus. Please make sure you check your inbox regularly, so you don't miss out. You can also refer to our handy checklist on the orientation homepage.
