  • Calling Arts & Humanities students who commute to campus – if you feel a bit isolated as you are not living on campus and are anxious about meeting people in the same situation, come along to meet others in the same situation who are also studying within the Faculty. You might meet a new friend or a car share partner. It’s a chance to grab a coffee or bite to eat and meet some new people on a very informal basis- come and go as you please. Faculty staff will be there to help make introduction and have a chat at this session- so do come along.

Workshops

These workshops are crucial for all students taking a first-year History module. The workshops will tell you what to look out for when making the transition from school to university, and they share useful tips about how to get through the first semester.  You will hear about differences between school and university, our expectations, our communication policy, the purpose of module guides and reading list, the library and other important matters. You will follow up on some of these issues with your tutors over the course of the semester.
