PG Welcome Week

Postgraduate Welcome Week

Each year, we hold a Welcome Week for new postgraduate students. There are a range of activities designed to help you settle in to student life.

Welcome Week 2016 is over. We'll post details of Welcome Week 2017 here when they become available.

The University's pre-arrival website contains registration and induction information for all new students. There is also an International Welcome Programme for international students.

See the information below to get a feel for what a typical Welcome Week is like.


Welcome Week 2016 will begin on 26 September and end on 30 September.

For more information, see the timetable that is specific to your programme:

Media, Culture, Heritage students

Before you arrive, you'll get introductory reading lists that we recommend you make your way through.

For Media degrees, we recommend you familiarise yourself with the media landscape in the UK by reading newspapers online.

For Art, Museum and Gallery, Heritage or Museum Studies degrees, we recommend you visit as many museums, galleries and heritage sites as possible. Look at their presentation and interpretation with a critical eye.
