Director of Studies Welcome

In this session, you will meet your Director of Studies (DoS) and key members of staff for your course. You will receive an overview of the course content and structure and hear about the expectations and responsibilities you will have as a student on your course. Your DoS will also talk about the sources of support available to you throughout your studies.

This will be a great opportunity ask any questions you may have about the course and to meet your new coursemates.

Insights: The Undergraduate Student Experience

In this session led by your Student Experience Officer, you will gain further insight into your chosen course. This session will include a number of talks from key people to help orientate you and provide an insight into what it's really like to study here.

You will hear from the following people during this talk:

  • Your Lead Peer Mentors who will talk to you about the Peer Mentoring scheme and how your mentor can help you through your first year. Your Lead Peer Mentors are second or third-year students who will be able to answer any questions you may have.

  • Current students who will be able to give you a snapshot of your course and the University. They will be able to share their experiences with you and can answer any questions.

  • Your Student Experience Officer will talk to you about the support available to you from them and how they can help you throughout your studies. They will also outline how you can get involved with the university.

  • Your Placement Officer who will outline the support you will receive from their team and discuss the placement opportunities and how they will support you in your placement search. You will hear advice on how to enhance your CV by getting involved in University activities and information about adding a placement year if you are currently not on a 4-year course.

  • The School of Management Careers Adviser who will outline the support available from the Careers Service when you are looking for internships and spring weeks and then later on when you are looking for a graduate role.

Personal Tutor Meet and Greet

In this informal session, you will meet with your Academic Personal Tutor as a group with their other new tutees. You will be emailed in Welcome Week with details of who your Academic Personal Tutor is and when you will meet them. This meeting will either be during Welcome Week or in the first week of teaching.

Global Networking

Join us for an interactive session led by International Consultant, Dr. Margarida Dolan. Be prepared to have your perceptions challenged and explore working in a global environment. You will have the opportunity to work with students from across all School of Management courses.

You will be allocated one session to attend. You will be emailed during Welcome Week with information on which session you must attend.

Campus Tour

To help orientate you around the campus, find some School of Management-only study areas and to try to understand the University of Bath's building number system, you are invited to sign up for a campus tour. These will be led by second year and final year students who will help you find your way around, share some of their favourite places on campus and help make sure you don't get lost finding your first lecture.

You will be emailed with the sign-up details during Welcome Week.

Q&A Drop-in and Induction Pack Collection

This is a drop-in session where you can ask the UG Team any questions and also collect your School of Management branded Keep Cup and receive information about your Academic Personal Tutor.
