What will happen at the Transition to Study event?

The event will run from 09:00 – 16:00 each day, and you can expect: 

  • Informative sessions with key support teams, including our Disability Inclusion Service, the University GP, library and more. 
  • A relaxed drop-in space where you can connect with our support teams. 
  • The chance to meet other students starting with us in September and become more familiar with your campus.  
  • A dedicated session with the school your course sits within, so you can meet support staff and ask any final questions before September arrives.  
  • Food and refreshments. 
  • Quiet spaces on campus if you would like to take time out from the activities.

FAQs

Who can attend the Transition to Study day?

Anyone who thinks they may need extra support with a disability or learning support need is welcome to attend.

Can I bring family and friends?

Of course! Starting university is a big transition, so we’d absolutely encourage anyone who is supporting you to get involved and join you.

Is there support for students with a disability to be able to attend the event?

You can let us know about your access requirements when you book onto the event. We’ll then work with you to do everything we can to support you. The team will also be on hand throughout the day for questions at designated drop in sessions.
