2018/19 New Students Induction and Information


We are looking forward to welcoming all our new students in October 2018. Warwick Welcome Week takes place between the 22nd to 30th September 2018 and the full programme of events will be available towards the end of August - the week has been designed to enable students to settle in and adapt to life at Warwick before the full teaching timetable starts on the 1st October.

The course start date of all new first year undergraduate students will be the first day of Welcome Week (24th September 2018). This is to reduce the financial barrier to attendance for those students who rely on SLC (Student Loan Company) maintenance loans and ensure all students can benefit from what's on offer.

New postgraduate students will be encouraged to attend activities and events as they wish. Welcome Week has been a feature of the PG calendar for three years with strong engagement and positive feedback.

The Centre for Education Studies will be holding induction events for all levels of students during Welcome Week. On the Thursday of Week 1 (4th October) at 5pm there will be a voluntary lecture in Room S0.19 (in Social Sciences) on the UK Education System. This is aimed at overseas students in CES at any level who would like a general background to formal education in the UK at the beginning of their course – all are welcome to attend – no need to book.
