Induction Week 2020

In Centre for Lifelong Learning Welcome Week is always an exciting time. We will still be meeting our new cohort, taking them on tours of the University, inducting them into using the Library, IT, and Careers Services, and making all the important steps towards building an active and engaged learning community but for the first time it will all be done virtually.

Although we will miss the hustle and bustle of a busy campus, our students will still get the same experience, being able to chat with academic and support teams as well as meet each other. Our cohort will even get the chance to connect with mature students from other departments in the Students’ Union mature student virtual meet and greet, along with being able to get involved with  online club nights and test out their brain power in the virtual escape rooms.

To ensure our new cohort feel ready to join us in three weeks’ time, we are holding online Q&A panels where staff from the Centre will be available to answer questions, explain how the first few weeks of term may look, and give insider insights into how to be a successful student.

Welcome Week, on the face of it, might not be quite the same as usual but we are confident it will be a great welcome to our new cohort and will equip them to become confident and talented Warwick students.
