At the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences (EARTH), we’re excited to be welcoming you to campus for the start of the academic year. You did so well to get here and we’re looking forward to getting to know you and work alongside you during your time here.
To help you settle into student life, we have planned induction activities where you will have the opportunity to get to know both staff and other students in the school. There will be kit collection on Friday 30 September and a series of induction events during the week commencing Monday 03 October.
