PG Induction Week

Postgraduate Induction Week

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

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 Induction Week is like.


Induction week 2018 will begin 24 September and end on 28 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.
