  • Reinforce positive messages about expectations
  • Make sure students are on the correct programme.
  • Encourage students to get involved in college life, supported by cross campus ‘get-involved’ activities

Freshers' Week


New students will receive a Virtual Fresher’s Pack from Student Services. It will contain all the relevant information and resources available at fresher’s fairs, such as; SU Election details, Clubs and Societies, Money Tips, Job info, Freebies and Online Study Smart Tips.

Content for Fresher’s is still being devised, and suggestions for such are most welcome from our curriculum partners.

Talk, Don't Walk

Student Services run a campaign over the first six weeks to encourage students to communicate with the careers team, if they feel they are on the wrong programme.

Instead of deciding to withdraw, we want you to communicate and not just leave the course. We inform students of our 'Talk, Don't Walk' campaign during their induction activities and provide support to help those you feel like they are struggling.

Returning Students (Refreshers Week)

These events are for our returning students and run similar to Induction, and usually delivered on Week 2 of the academic calendar.

Refreshers is primarily directed at the following returning groups due to current low retention. The plan is to run specific team building activities to improve in year retention.

Part-Time and Induction week will run from Week 3 in the academic calendar.
