Welcome and Induction Week

20–24 September 2021

We are so excited to welcome you to Kingston in September!

Your Welcome and Induction Week is just the start of helping to get you settled into the Kingston University family.

We understand you may be worried about how the coronavirus pandemic could affect you starting your studies with us, but rest assured we are all working hard to ensure you get off to the best possible start to your time at Kingston.

We're still working on some of the details, but your Welcome and Induction week will be made up of the following:

Your course induction

Course inductions will take place online during the week of 20 to 24 September*. It is essential you attend this important introduction to your course where you will meet your lecturers, find out about the course, our libraries, study skills and more!

*Please also note: some courses start before 20 September; in this case you will be (or already have been) contacted by your faculty.

We're busy getting your course induction schedules ready! They will be available to view from 1 August.

Welcome Programme and Freshers' events

The Welcome Programme runs alongside your course induction and you can pick and choose what you want to attend. The events will introduce you to some of the opportunities you'll have as a Kingston student, help you settle into life at Kingston and give you the opportunity to meet new friends and have some fun!

The Welcome Programme isn't quite ready for you to view yet, but will be available from 1 August.

Welcome to Kingston online module

Our online Welcome to Kingston module will introduce you to the University and take you through the support available should you need it.

You will be able to access the online module from Wednesday 1 September via Canvas as long as you have completed your enrolment. We will be inviting you to complete your enrolment via email, so remember to keep an eye out for these important emails.
