Induction 2021

Welcome to the School of Computing.

Welcome to the School of Computing!

Our induction period starts on Monday 20th September 2021.

This 1-week induction period will enable all UG, PGT and PGR students to come to the Urban Science Building for in person Welcome sessions and to access the programme via Canvas (our virtual learning environment.) 

We look forward to welcoming you as you arrive, whether in person or virtually, on-campus.

Once registered, you should find that you are already enrolled on the relevant school community (from 13/09/21).




The induction online learning materials will cover topics such:

  • Welcome to your community
  • Welcome to Newcastle University
  • Digital Learning
  • Student Life
  • Student Services and Support
  • Academic Guidance and support
  • Welcome to the School of Computing
  • Learning at the School of Computing

To supplement the Canvas online learning materials there will be some synchronous induction events.

It is vital that you engage and attend with both of these activities to ensure that you have all the information you need to have a successful and enjoyable time while studying this year.

Teaching will begin on Monday 27th September but if you have any questions before then please contact us (EMAIL:
