Academic induction information

What to expect from the start of your course

Welcome to, or welcome back to, the University of Leicester! We hope that you have had the chance to explore the Welcome website and are looking forward to the exciting programme of online and socially distanced on-campus activities that have been planned for Welcome Week and throughout the term.

In addition to the University welcome events, your School has developed its own programme of academic induction and orientation events for you. Through your induction you will become part of your School’s community and have the opportunity to get to know other students and to meet and interact with key members of academic and professional services staff in your School (remotely and/or in-person) throughout the year.

Academic induction will provide you with an overview of your degree programme and its content and how it will be delivered in 2020-21. Through a planned programme of interactive student support workshops taking place throughout the year, your School will provide you with opportunities to:

  • Find out more about your degree programme and the academic support available.
  • Let us know how you are getting on at key stages in the year and share some feedback on your programme.
  • Ask any questions you may have about your programme and your personal and academic development.

Your School will also be checking-in with you regularly throughout the academic year to make sure you are settling-in to your studies well and that you are happy with your progress. We are ready to help in any way we can to make sure you get the support you need. Please just ask whenever you need help.

Finding more detail on your induction schedule is easy. It will be on your timetable after Friday 18 September 2020, once you have completed registration. Please keep checking your timetable regularly for the most up-to-date information.
