In your personal welcome week itinerary the compulsory events are highlighted in blue. Any talks with an asterisk* next to it means it is a repeat talk but you must attend the relevant talk according to the first letter of your surname.  Optional or elective events are in orange. Anything underlined contains a hyperlink to the relevant booking page.  

We run it this way to make sure that you get all the essential information you need and have the option to find out more about the things that interest you. Make sure you sign up for anything that you are curious about – this is part of being a university student: if you don’t make it happen, nothing will happen... The student-run sessions are highly recommended – you want to learn from those who have been there before!

 

*Attention MSc Accounting and Finance - Pre-sessional Maths and Statistics*

The pre-sessional sessions are optional.

In the instance you wish to attend you need to attend the group sessions according to your surname.

Pre-sessional Maths and Statistics classes begin on Monday 18th September and lasts for two weeks.

You will need to attend 6 Lectures and 6 tutorials spread over these two weeks accumulating to total of 18 hrs.

In the instance you are unable to attend a session, you can always catch up in a TA Support session which runs throughout Welcome Week and Week one.
