Induction to your new academic department is an essential part of Welcome week.
Your departmental induction is a compulsory part of your first week. It’s your chance to find out more about your course, to talk with key members of staff, like your personal tutor, and to meet the friends you’re going to be studying with at Essex.
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.
During Welcome week, please attend your home department events. Find out your home department on the MyEssex portal. If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
