Welcome Week at Medway

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.

This week is a helpful introduction to the University and its services, including the Library and your students' 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…

  • Go to the Welcome Fair on Wednesday 20 SeptemberThis is your opportunity to find out more about all the societies and sports teams you can join. You can also pick up a few freebies from local businesses.
  • Attend your school's induction events. School induction events are a great opportunity to meet fellow students studying similar courses to you, while discovering the wide range of support services provided by your school. Contact your school for more information.
  • Take the Library tour. When studying at university the library will be a key resource, so it's important you know how to use all the services and where to go for help.
