Welcome to the Faculty of Social Sciences

Welcome to the Faculty of Social Sciences and to the University.

Our welcome period is a fundamental part of your University experience offering various opportunities for you to familiarise yourself with your programme of study, your tutors and other students. Our welcome aims to support your transition into university life, whether this is your first time at University or a return to study, so please embrace and participate in the many events and activities. You can also take this time to find out more about the University, services we offer, our great facilities and the way everything works.
