Welcome week 2019

New students mingling with current ones at last year's in-person Fresher's Fair

Huge congratulations on getting your place to study at Kent!!

The adventure begins with Welcome Week (aka Fresher’s Fair)
Monday 16th – Friday 20th September 2019


Your full welcome week timetable will be given to you nearer the time.  Here are just a few of the activities you will be able to attend:

Within the School

  • Monday morning are the all important programme introductions.  A great way to meet the staff who will be teaching you, see who else is on your course and find out some essential information about how your course will be running.
  • Straight after this is the Undergraduate (BA/BSc students) Welcome Drinks Reception! This is a fabulous way to start getting to know people a bit more. Over a few drinks and probably some nibbles.

As the week progresses there will be:

  • Wellbeing introduction
  • Library and IT induction
  • Year Abroad and short term studies induction
  • Introduction to a Year in Professional Practice
  • Meet your academic advisor session
  • Sustainability champions event
  • Climate Emergency session
