Induction Events for New Starters

Due to the ongoing response to Covid-19, all face to face induction events have been cancelled in 2020. We are working to transition these events to a virtual experience and will update this page in due course.

A number of induction events are available to new staff. These provide the opportunity to learn more about the University as well as meet other new starters. Please see below for details on each event.


Welcome to the University Event

The Welcome to the University Event is an opportunity for new staff to hear about the University's history and strategy for the future during a short presentation from the Vice Chancellor, Professor Koen Lamberts.

The event starts with an opportunity to meet and speak with the VC and other colleagues new to the University. There is also the opportunity to browse a selection of University stalls outlining benefits and services available to staff.

New members of staff who have recently joined the University will receive an invitation to attend via email.

  New Starter Coffee Morning

This informal event will give you the opportunity to meet other new starters from across the University over coffee and cakes, to find out more about the University and the community you have joined.

We invite guest speakers to the coffee mornings to give our new staff the opportunity to learn more about different departments and roles across the organisation.

There will also be an optional tour of the campus after the New Starter Coffee Morning, which will be led by one of our students. This is a great opportunity to find out more about the location and history of some the University's main buildings, and will take approximately one hour.

New members of staff who have joined the University will receive an invitation to attend via email.
