Your Welcome and Induction

For most students, Welcome and Induction will take place between Monday 17 and Friday 21 January*.

Welcome and Induction Week is just the start of getting you settled into Kingston University. When you join us there will be activities to help you settle into life as a Kingston student, meet new friends and get ready for your studies.

During Welcome and Induction you will be introduced to your course and Faculty, some of the support services available to you and we'll provide you with the practical information you need to know before you begin your studies.

*Please note:

  • Students studying in our Business School will be required to attend online from 10 January.
  • Students joining our Health, Social Care and Education faculty will start earlier; students on these courses will be emailed separately with details of your start date. If you have any questions or require more information about your Welcome and Induction for these courses, please email e.burton@kingston.ac.uk.

Full details on your Welcome and Induction can be found here.
