Navigating Your First Week

Once you’ve unpacked and are starting to get to know your flatmates, it can become overwhelming when you think about all the other things you have to sort out before teaching starts. So you don’t have to worry I’ve listed the main things to think about during that first week.

ID Check

It’s important to have a valid passport, birth/adoption certificate or EU identity card for your ID Check in Welcome Week. If you’ve not got originals then the uni will take a certified copy. For more info visit

Student ID (Campus Card)

Once you’ve had your ID Check you can then pick up your Student ID from the Student Hubs. You’ll use this for getting into buildings, printing, borrowing books and as ID for handing work in.


During Welcome Week, make sure you go to your Course Induction where you will meet your teaching team and find out more about your course, exams, giving feedback and what to do if you need support.
