All week Induction to your new academic department is an essential part of welcome week.

Why attend?

Each Department, School and Centre will be holding a welcome event for new undergraduate, postgraduate taught and postgraduate research students during welcome week (1 - 6 October).

This welcome to your department is a unique chance to find out more about your degree, to talk with key members of staff like your personal tutor or supervisor, and to meet the friends you're going to be studying with at Essex.

Don't miss it!

Not sure which is your department?

We have academic departments and schools across three faculties - Humanities, Social Sciences and Science and Health.  

Studying more than one subject?  All students studying joint degrees are allocated a 'home' department.  This is where you'll go to access key support such as your personal tutor and peer mentor.

During Welcome week, please attend your home department events.  Find out your home department at www.essex.ac.uk/welcome/myessex
