We will meet in room T/2.09 from 13:00-16:00 for a welcome and introduction to the School.
Tuesday 25 September and Wednesday 26 September
Tuesday and Wednesday will be devoted to sessions focused on technical skills and getting acquainted with the software and facilities available in the School. You will be assigned a group for these days and will either attend the School in the morning or the afternoon depending on your group.
Thursday 27 September
Students on joint courses where the School of Computer Science and Informatics is not the home school (MSc Computational and Data Journalism, MSc Data Science and Analytics) should attend the School on Thursday 27 September. We will meet in room T/2.09 for a welcome and introduction to the School, and will then visit the PC labs to get acquainted with the software and facilities available in the School.
Part-time students should attend the Thursday session if they are unable to attend on Monday.
At the beginning of September, a set of introductory videos will be made available to help you select your optional modules for the year. However, it is requested that new students do not attempt to complete the module selection process at the conclusion of online enrolment, since we wish to give you further advice on your module choices once you have arrived in Cardiff.
