Dear students,

I would like to welcome you all to the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bath.

Your first weeks at the University are very important academically and socially. The Department's Welcome Week is planned to allow you to engage with both of these essential aspects of your University experience. During this week you will be given the opportunity to: - meet other students that are starting this journey with you, as well as returning students who will welcome you to the Departmental student community - learn more about the unique teaching circumstances for this year - get to know key members of staff in the Department both administrative and academic - familiarise yourself with the pastoral support available during your studies with us

There will be assorted activities and talks detailed on your Welcome Week timetable and it is really important that you participate actively. Teaching then starts on Monday 28 September.

We understand that beginning University is a major step in your life. We are here to help and support you, so please let us know if you have any difficulties and we will do our best to resolve them.

Looking forward to meeting you during Welcome Week.

With best wishes,

Dr John Benardis Director of Studies (Years 1 and 2)
