Induction Week will take place from Monday 20 September 2021-Monday 27 September 2021.

Induction is your opportunity to familiarise yourself with your School and programme of study and ensure that you are prepared before your course begins. Your Student Induction will be delivered by your School, with a mixture of both face-to-face and online activities. Some of this is essential for you to complete and you should wait to hear more from your School.

To access your Student Induction, you must firstly make sure that you are registered online.

During Induction, you will:

  • Meet fellow students, staff and the teams who will support you on your journey
  • Discover the culture and ethos of the University
  • Learn about the step up to University 
  • Explore the University, city and opportunities open to you

Much of your induction will be delivered through our virtual learning environment Canvas. This gives you the opportunity to undertake your core induction at a time that suits you. You can find lots of helpful information about using Canvas here. Details of how to access Canvas will be shared with you once registered.

Newcastle University Students’ Union Freshers Week will also offer many online and in-person activities for you to get involved with.
