New students – new resources for 2017

Meet the VC generic emailThe University’s Welcome Notebook has been redesigned extensively for this year’s intake of new students. There are two customised versions of the notebook, one for UK students and the other for International and EU students.

Previously the Welcome Pack comprised a number of different leaflets and booklets in one envelope with a welcome letter. This year students are receiving one comprehensive notebook, featuring clearly marked sections about the services and facilities available to students, with additional pages for note taking and timetabling.

The notebook is the first presentation of our new brand to students. It is being sent to the homes of new UK students, provided to International and EU students during orientation week and distributed by faculty staff to every returning student.

Additional resources for new students this year include the refreshed new student webpages, with a customised section for International and EU students. The existing Student Handbook and Student Charter has been updated; however, a more detailed review of both documents will be conducted this autumn.
