Introduction Week: 2 September 2021

Programme for Day 4

You can find the series of events and activities, including descriptions and links, for the fourth day of Introduction Week below.

Individual tutor meetings: 2-3 September

On either 2 September or 3 September, you will have a personal meeting with your academic tutor. You will be contacted by your tutor and given a time for the meeting, which will be done in timeslots of 20 minutes per student at some point between 09.00 and 18.00. During the tutor meeting, you will get to know your academic tutor, discuss any concerns you may have about your upcoming courses and learn more about what you can expect from your tutor. This is also a good opportunity to ask any questions about your class schedule. 

Depending on your tutor and your situation, these meetings may take place in-person or digitally via Zoom. Your tutor will inform you of the time, location, place and/or link to the meeting. Please note that tutor meetings are mandatory to attend and take priority over Committee Activities.
