History Archaeology and Religion

Undergraduate students

Welcome to the School of History, Archaeology and Religion. This School is commonly known as ‘SHARE’ within Cardiff University therefore this is probably how you will see our School referenced across the University.

To help you settle in as quickly as possible, we are running a series of events in induction week which are all designed to prepare you for the coming academic year. You should attend as many sessions as possible but to help you manage your time, we’ve indicated which are essential.

We have also arranged an Emotional Resilience Session in your third week with us. This recommended session will be running twice, at 13:00-14:30 on either Wednesday 9 October or Friday 11 October, so that you can attend the session most suited to your timetable. Please sign up to one of the sessions on Eventbrite (you will be emailed a link separately to this).
