Welcome and Induction Week

Welcome and Induction Week is just the start of getting you settled into the Kingston University family.

During this week (14-18 September 2020), you will attend your course induction sessions, complete your enrolment and pick up your ID card. You will also have the opportunity to find out more about life at Kingston, attend taster sessions and activities and visit the Fresher's Fair.

Welcome and Induction schedules

Your Welcome and Induction Week schedule will be available to view here from July 2020.

The schedule will explain where you need to go on your first day and what your first week* will involve. Over the week you will meet your lecturers and find out about your course, study skills, the library, IT support and more! In the gaps, you are encouraged to take part in the events and activities you are interested in.

Welcome schedules will be available to view from July but please ensure you keep 14-18 September available in your diary.

* Please note some courses start before Welcome and Induction Week, in this case you will be (or already have been) contacted by your faculty.

Essential welcome events

As well as your course induction, there's loads of other activities to take part in. A full list of activities will be available later on in the summer, but once you're on campus, look out for:

  • KU: Unplugged – Live musical performances on campus across Welcome and Induction week
  • Film at 5 – Catch a film every day at 5pm
  • Taster sessions – Attend an art class, learn African drumming or try soap making - a fun way to try something different and meet new people.
  • Student Services sessions – Find out about the different support available during your time at Kingston (sessions will include careers, money management and academic skills).

If you miss parts of Welcome Week, don't worry. We will be running additional events to introduce you to key services during the first few weeks of teaching block one.
