Induction into your new department is an essential part of Welcome Week.

We have organised a series of events throughout Welcome Week and look forward to welcoming you into the School of Philosophy and Art History (SPAH) and the Interdisciplinary Studies Centre (ISC). Some of these are compulsory to attend while others are optional but we hope you'll join in as many as possible and get to know more about your course, key members of staff and your fellow students.
