Make the most of Welcome Week

By Allie Burnett | 17th Aug 2017

Once you have registered make sure you get involved in all that Welcome Week (or as some people call it, 'week 0') has to offer.

Welcome Week is a helpful introduction to the University and its services, including the Library and Kent Union, getting you ready for when teaching starts on 25 September 2017.

Even if you're not living in University accommodation you still need to attend Welcome Week.

Get the most from Welcome Week and make sure you…
